Your prayers can change nations

Elijah prayed and changed the weather of a country for three years. The Bible says your prayers can have as powerful an effect.

Jesus encouraged us to talk to God about things that are unjust - to keep asking for help and to not lose heart.

See Luke 18:1-8 and James 5:16-18 for more background.

God, thank you that you listen to us when we pray. Be with all the nations where there is injustice, and thank you for sending relief. We praise you. Amen.
