This week we look at one of the great characters of the Old Testament, Elijah.
Reading: 1 Kings 17:1-4
 Now Elijah the Tishbite, from Tishbe in Gilead, said to Ahab, “As the Lord, the God of Israel, lives, whom I serve, there will be neither dew nor rain in the next few years except at my word.”  Then the word of the Lord came to Elijah:  “Leave here, turn eastward and hide in the Kerith Ravine, east of the Jordan.  You will drink from the brook, and I have directed the ravens to supply you with food there.”

Prayer: Lord make me ready for whatever you have for me to do or say for you today.
