17 Elijah was as human as we are, and yet when he prayed earnestly that no rain would fall, none fell for the next three and a half years! 17 Elijah was a man just like us. He prayed earnestly that it would not rain, and it did not rain on the land for three and a half years.
18 Then he prayed for rain, and down it poured. The grass turned green, and the crops began to grow again. 18 Again he prayed, and the heavens gave rain, and the earth produced its crops.
