Prayer is so powerful

Prayer is so powerful, when we pray we are to believe that God will answer our prayer.
It may not always be answered the way we want, but God is in control of our life and He will answer our prayer according to His will. He knows what is best and we have to depend on Him taking care of the situation.
His way and His time will always be best for us.
Elijah built an altar, he built a trench and put the wood in place, cut the bullock in pieces and placed it on the wood. He told the people to pour water on the sacrifice and on the wood. They did that three times.
Elijah prayed, “Hear me, O Lord, hear me, that this people may know that thou art the Lord God, and that thou hast turned their heart back again. Then the fire of the Lord fell, and consumed the burnt sacrifice, and the wood, and the stones, and the dust, and licked up the water that was in the trench. And when the people saw it, they fell on their faces: and they said, The Lord, he is the God; the Lord, he is the God.” 1 Kings 18: 37-39
The people saw how God had answered Elijah’s prayer.
We serve the same God today. Prayer is so powerful.
