      Elias Was A Man Subject To Like Passions As We Are
      SYNOPSIS:The Holy Prophet Elijah (Elias) was among the greatest men of God, and yet he had weaknesses also. His life teaches us much about prayer and struggle if we will listen. There is much encouragement in St James' words concerning the prophet: "Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months" Do you understand the implications of this? Your weaknesses and sins do not hinder your prayer, if you have belief, and desire. God always inclines His ear to strugglers who pray, even when they fail.
