Elijah, Superhero or just like us? - Be sure to pray and keep on praying

Duncan Banks

Who is you favourite movie superhero? Batman? Wolverine? And if you could have one superhero power what would it be? X-ray vision – so you could scratch off the winning card maybe?

Do you ever see any of those famous bible characters as a kind of superhero? Because if you do, they become untouchable and out of reach. Elijah raised the dead, called down fire from heaven and bought a nation to its knees with one prayer – yet James, the brother of Jesus, described him as completely human as we are.

Sometimes talking to God feels like the only option left – even if we are not sure he is really listening or interested. But we need to learn the power of specific, humble and persistent prayer. After all James also said you don’t have because you don’t ask God for it. Forget spurious superhero powers - what’s the one thing you need to talk to God about today?
