Praying With A Prayer

“Praying earnestly literally means ‘praying with a prayer.’ It’s more than words. It means acting on your prayers because you expect an answer. One reason many of us never get an answer to our prayers is that all we do is pray. You can’t just pray like Elijah; you have to act like Elijah. He didn’t just pray against the prophets of Baal; he challenged them to a sacrifice showdown. Elijah didn’t just pray for God to part the Jordan River; he struck it with his rolled-up cloak and walked through on dry ground.”
