Bible Story: God hears and answers our prayers. :: 1 Kings 18:16-35
This weekend we learned God hears and answers our prayers. We read a Bible story about a group of people lead by King Ahab who were angry with Elijah. They blamed Elijah because it hadn’t rained in their town in over three years and they were in a MAJOR drought. Elijah told King Ahab to bring his prophets to Mount Carmel for a challenge to see whose god was the real God. Ahab and his prophets built an alter and prayed to their gods to burn up the alter with fire. The prophets called out to their gods but there was no answer and no fire.
Elijah built an alter and prayed to God asking He show Himself to these people so that they would know and believe in Him. God answered Elijah’s prayers and sent fire to the alter Elijah had made.
This week remember to pray to God and thank Him that He hears and our prayers!

This weekend’s feature presentation in The Great 8 Movie Marathon at Quest Cinemas was a lot of fun! We saw the movie “Spy Chase” and learned “I Will Follow Only God!” We watched as secret agents discovered clues and uncovered the mystery of who we should follow. We learned that just like Elijah followed only God, we should follow only God too!
