As soon as the contest on Mount Carmel was over and the Lord had shown His power by sending fire, Elijah told King Ahab, ‘Go, eat and drink, for heavy rain is on the way.’ – Slide 1

Then Elijah climbed to the top of Mount Carmel with his servant. – Slide 2

Then he bent down to the ground and put his face between his knees and prayed for rain. – Slide 3

‘Go and look towards the sea,’ Elijah told his servant. So the servant went up and looked. – Slide 4

But he could not see any sign of rain. – Slide 5

‘There is nothing there,’ the servant reported. So Elijah prayed a second time. – Slide 6

Slide 16

Elijah prayed for a seventh time. The servant climbed up to look out to sea. – Slide 16

Suddenly, he noticed a small cloud, about the size of a man’s fist, rising out of the sea. He rushed back to tell Elijah the news. – Slide 17

Slide 18

Elijah knew God had answered his prayer and had a message for King Ahab. ‘Hitch up your chariot and go down the mountain before the rain stops you.’ The sky grew black with clouds, the wind rose and heavy rain started falling. King Ahab quickly rode off in his chariot. – Slide 18

Slide 19

The power of the Lord came on Elijah and, tucking his cloak into his belt, he ran ahead of Ahab all the way to Jezreel. It was about the same distance as a marathon run. – Slide 19
