Daily Prayer for October 9th, 2018
Good morning, God—thank You for this stormy day!! 🙂
As the prophecies of Your word (the Holy Bible) are being fulfilled, please keep everyone safe in the path of Hurricane Michael. Bring us all into harmony with heaven. Like the last and final Elijah, tested for his faith in the times of trouble, zealous for You, You were him in the peacefulness of silence. When he was the weakest, You were the strongest, because he kept his trust in You. In Jesus name Amen.
10 Elijah answered the captain, “If I am a man of God, may fire come down from heaven and consume you and your fifty men!” Then fire fell from heaven and consumed the captain and his men.
12 After the earthquake came a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire came a gentle whisper.
Elijah Stops the Rain
17 Elijah was a prophet from Tishbe in Gilead. One day he went to King Ahab and said, “I’m a servant of the living Lord, the God of Israel. And I swear in his name that it won’t rain until I say so. There won’t even be any dew on the ground.”
2 Later, the Lord said to Elijah, 3 “Leave and go across the Jordan River so you can hide near Cherith Creek. 4 You can drink water from the creek, and eat the food I’ve told the ravens to bring you.”
5 Elijah obeyed the Lord and went to live near Cherith Creek. 6 Ravens brought him bread and meat twice a day, and he drank water from the creek. 7 But after a while, it dried up because there was no rain.
