E lijah prayed for Israel during a time of unprecedented backsliding among the people. It is against the dark background of Ahab being the most wicked king in Israel that Elijah is introduced in the Bible.
As a result of Elijah’s prophetic prayer ministry the fire of God fell from heaven and the people of Israel repented and cried out, “The LORD, He is God! The LORD He is God!”
Scripture tells us that in the last days God will once again restore the ministry of Elijah to prepare the way of the Lord. “See, I will send you the prophet Elijah before that great and dreadful day of the LORD comes. He will turn the hearts of the fathers to their children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers; or else I will come and strike the land with a curse” (Mal 4:5-6).
Yeshua also told His disciples, “Indeed, Elijah is coming first and will restore all things” (Mt 17:11). The Holy Spirit will be poured out upon all flesh and sons and daughters will prophecy. Like Elijah a righteous remnant will, in the midst of sin and darkness, give themselves to fervent, unceasing prayer, until the fire falls from heaven and turns the Jewish people to God.
The Elijah Prayer Army was launched in 1996, to specifically pray for the end time revival in Israel and the Middle East that will prepare the second coming of Messiah. We invite you to stand with us and thousands of other intercessors around the world, joining together in intercession as watchmen on the walls of Jerusalem.
“At the time of sacrifice, the prophet Elijah stepped forward and prayed: ‘O LORD, God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel, let it be known today that you are God in Israel and that I am your servant and have done all these things at your command. Answer me, O LORD, answer me, so these people will know that you, O LORD, are God, and that you are turning their hearts back again.’ Then the fire of the LORD fell and burned up the sacrifice, the wood, the stones and the soil, and also licked up the water in the trench. When all the people saw this, they fell prostrate and cried, ‘The LORD—he is God! The LORD—he is God!’” (I Kings 18:36-39).
