Do you ever wonder if prayer makes a difference? It did to Elijah. Elijah prayed, and it changed the weather. The writer of James makes it clear that Elijah was just like us, which means: our prayers can change things too. Prayer changes us. It changes how we see ourselves, how we see others, and how we see the world.
Sit down for a conversation with God and talk. Talk about anything: what you need, what you think others need, or what you think the world needs. What your hopes are, what your fears are, how you’re feeling today.
Whether our prayers change the weather or not, who knows? Anything is possible with God. What do we know for sure is that God uses ordinary people just like you, me, and Elijah to do powerful things.
