Elijah and the Prophets of Baal

Scripture: 1 Kings 18:17-24; 36-39

As we prepare for the birth of Christ, let us remember the reason for the season.

The text reminds us about the importance of adhering to God’s instructions.

As we obey Him, He shows up for us. Through these days of uncertainty, our God is still the God of miracles.

Our faith in God’s work and prayer will carry us through. We need not focus on worldly things, but rather on the word of God.

Let us continue to love one another as people of faith. As we obey God’s instructions, we remember His promise. He will never forsake us.


Heavenly Father,

We are thankful for your mercies. We pray for the sick and weary. Please heal our world and grant us peace in Jesus’ name. Amen.
