Elijah’s Greatest Prayer Challenge

A Prayer We Should Never Forget


4 Principles

#1) God prepares us for the big challenges by providing us with opportunities to face smaller challenges victoriously

#2) It is in the midst of situations beyond our control that we really learn to pray

#3) God understands our anxieties, our fears, our disappointments

#4) God is particularly responsive to our prayers when we are able to get beyond our own interests and concerns and focus on other people’s needs, but especially on God’s reputation
