James reminds us how powerful prayer is through the example of Elijah. Elijah was just like any other believer, only he was particularly fervent in his zeal for God’s glory. Because of this, his prayers had power with God. If we are to see answers to our prayers, we must also seek to be holy and earnestly desire in prayer the things that will glorify God.
