Many a people who desire to turn their generation around, many desire to make a mark and a great change in their generations, they wake up day in day out only to discover that their good intentions and visions are now impotent because it lacks power for accomplishment!
For truly, no divine vision can be rightly accomplished without the backing of divine power, the power of the supernatural. Oh, such Power for supernatural accomplishment is birth by heart-felt praying.
Elder James in his writing had a perfect summary of the man Elijah, a right man for the right course at the right place and at the right time. (James 5:17,18; 1 Kings 17 – 18),
“Elijah was a man with a nature like ours, and HE PRAYED EARNESTLY that it would not rain; and it did not rain on the land for three years and six months. And HE PRAYED AGAIN, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth produced its fruit”.
Note the statement, “He prayed earnestly”, “He prayed again”. Such was a man that turned his generation around for the Lord. through his heart-felt praying, he held the key of rain for three years and six months, in order to turn “the straying Israel” unto their maker, such was a man with a blazing heart. He prayed EARNESTLY and he prayed AGAIN.
Brethren, a blazing heart is a praying heart. We can’t separate praying from blazing, in fact, it is praying that gave birth to blazing. Praying that is bold, that is strong. “Oh brethren the highest form of worship and speech is prayer. Praying that moves God is prayer that moves us. If we are not moved by our prayers how do we expect them to move God” Leonard Ravenhill.
Elijah responded to the call for resurrection of fervent praying, praying that is “owned by God.” Loud crying! Praying out of comfort, Gethsemane kind of prayer, agonizing prayer. (1 Kings 18:41-46).
The Lord seeks such a man again in our generation today, who will take actions in line with the will of God on earth to bring back a straying generation, but this cannot be in view if our heart is not yet set on fire, and ablaze for the Lord.
