April 23: Pray

 

Scripture Lesson: 1 Kings 18:41-46

 

Today is the birthday of one of the greatest lefthanders in baseball history, Warren Spahn. In his 21-year career, most of which was spent with the Milwaukee Braves, Spahn won 363 games, struck out 2,583 batters, and had a career ERA of 3.09. Along with Braves pitcher Johnny Sain, the two hurlers created one of the best one-two punches in all of baseball history. They were so good together that a saying came about: “Spahn and Sain, then pray for rain.”

 

Prayer is the theme of today’s Scripture lesson. For three years, after Elijah the prophet prayed it would not rain, a drought had prevailed during the reign of evil King Ahab and his queen Jezebel. The prophets of Baal had just been defeated on Mt. Carmel, and many people of Israel had turned back to God. Elijah sent word to the king, telling him to get ready because rain was going to come. Elijah prayed, and once again the awesome power of God was shown, for it rained.

  1. How confident are you in your prayers?

  2. Have you ever prayed for something to happen and it did not happen? How did you feel after that?

  3. How often do you pray outside of blessing the food at a meal?

Prayer is conversation with God. He always wants time with us, and wants the very best for our lives. Being confident in our prayer life is trusting in God enough to know that he knows what is best for us and He is going to do just that!
