Practical Challenge

Thank you Kate B for these Practical Challenges!

God heard Elijah’s prayer and the young boy was made alive again!  What a happy moment!  ☺

We know that God hears our prayers as well!  We may not get an answer for a long time, but we still need to remember that God does listen and He cares for us.  Say a prayer of thanks to God for caring for you.

“The Lord is near to all who call upon Him, to all who call upon Him in truth.  He will fulfill the desire of those who fear Him; He also will hear their cry and save them.” Psalm 145v18-19
