Elijah was a human being just like us with no special power. He's not a superhero . God is the Almighty One Who has the power to withhold rain and to send rain (1 Kings 17:1, 1 Kings 18). However, Elijah's earnest prayer is being used here as an incentive for us to pray. Want to see God's miracles? Pray!
"Heaven is full of answers to prayer for which no one ever bothered to ask!" ~Billy Graham
