James 5:16 says, "The effective fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much." The next verse goes on to say Elijah was a man just like you...he prayed hard that it would rain and it did...let me say something to you, Elijah ain't got nothing on you. The word of God declares how he was a human like you and me. In fact because you are in Christ Jesus and God's Spirit lives in you...you got something on Elijah. You have Christ on the inside of you.
God is no respecter of persons...if one man can pray for rain and it rains...surely you can pray for opportunities, healing and blessings to rain on you. The key is to go hard...don't give God one of those wimpy requests but pray like you know Him and believe you have received what you prayed for because God is ready to rain on you.
