Revival Comes When We Seek God
The story of Elijah praying and seeing fire fall from Heaven is enthralling! The prophets of Baal had opposed God in 1 Kings 18, and Elijah made a challenge, “Call ye on the name of your gods, and I will call on the name of the LORD: and the God that answereth by fire, let him be God” (1 Kings 18:24b). We know how the story ends, the prophets of Baal prayed and nothing happened. Then Elijah prayed a brief, sixty-three word prayer—and God sent the fire!
