Where Are America’s Elijahs?
WHERE ARE AMERICA’S ELIJAHS?
I. ELIJAH PERSONALLY PRAYED!
A. We have the same PRIVILEGE Elijah had.
*The Kneeling Christian–“Prayer is our highest privilege, our gravest responsibility, and the greatest power God has put into our hands. Prayer, real prayer, is the noblest, the sublimest, the most stupendous act that any creature can perform.”
*Thomas Brooks: “Communion with God makes bitter things sweet and massive things light.”
B. We have the same PROBLEM Elijah had.
*F.B. Meyer: “The righteous man can affect the whole history of his fatherland by his prayers–it was so with Elijah as we learn here. It was so with John Knox whose prayers were more dreaded by Mary of Scots than the armies of Philip.”
