Elijah was a human being, even as we are. When he prayed earnestly that it would not rain, it did not rain on the land for three and a half years. And then when he prayed again, the heavens gave rain, and the earth produced its crops. Father God, we pray that You would raise up some Christian leaders in East Timor who are like Elijah. Men and women of integrity and humility. People of prayer and fasting. People who know God’s heart because they seek Your heart and spend time with You. And when they speak and when they pray, we ask that many will listen and pay attention because what they hear is right and true and important to pay attention to. May their words and prayers stir up revival in this land (The Bible, James 5:17-18).
