Prayer at Mount Carmel

Elijah was a man of like passions, just like us but though he was like us there was something different in him that made his payers powerful. He prayed earnestly that it would not rain and it did not rain on the land for three and a half years. Again he prayed and the heavens gave rain, and the earth produced its crops. Elijah was a man of faith, rising up in prayer. He climbed the Mount Carmel and released the blessings. Today we need more Elijah’s in this generation who would have the spiritual prayer quotient to move the mountain and shake the nations. The prayers of every believer ought to be powerful.
7 Steps to See the Fire from the Lord:

1) Invitation to Pray:

1 Kings 18:30(KJV) And Elijah said unto all the people, Come near unto me. And all the people came near unto him. And he repaired the altar of the LORD that was broken down.

Give an invitation to pray with the constant knowledge of Jesus. Call people like how Elijah called and repaired the altar of the Lord that was broken. Elijah took twelve stones and started building it in the name of the Lord. Likewise, we also need to set ourselves in order to the Lord and pray for people so that God will change their lives through our powerful prayers. Invite and pray together with them to see fire from heaven.
It’s time to rise up and walk from discouragements, troubles and depression. Ask ourselves when is the last time that we gave an invitation to pray? At Carmel people came, so with humility invite people to pray and they will come and once they come the Lord will pour out the fire from heaven for them to see His power.

2) Introspecting our lives:

1 Kings 18:30(KJV) And Elijah said unto all the people, Come near unto me. And all the people came near unto him. And he repaired the altar of the LORD that was broken down.

Elijah saw that the altar was broken and he repaired the altar. Today we need to introspect ourselves and repair things that are broken in our lives. Prayer is mandatory be it a personal prayer or a family prayer it needs to be examined today. Fix areas which have leakage in our life; it could be family, marriage and relationships. Introspect it now, and as we cry out to the Lord, He will hear us from heaven.
