When God’s power is manifested in an undeniable way, people are driven by their sense of wonder to worship! We are learning as a church that it is just as important to allow testimonies for the celebration of answered prayer as it is to make room for requests. On the occasions people hear the answers to requests they made at some point during our journey of faith together, hearts are touched, and God is glorified!
Elijah led God’s people in just such a time of recognition, when he called for fire from Heaven to consume the sacrifice made to the Lord as he challenged the prophets of Baal.
When the challenge was finished, God had answered in a way that was undeniable and the people responded in spontaneous worship,
“And when all the people saw it, they fell on their faces: and they said, The Lord, he is the God; the Lord, he is the God.”
As we press on in prayer, we must not forget to share our victories in the Lord. As we do, we encourage those around us to see God in the answers and we reaffirm that we serve a risen Savior who indeed “is in the world today.
