1 Kings 18
- When it was time for the evening offering, Elijah the prophet approached the altar and prayed: “O Lord God of Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, prove today that you are God in Israel and that I am your servant and have done all these things at your command.
- Answer me, O Lord, answer me, so these people will know that you, O Lord, are the true God and that you are winning back their allegiance.”
- Then fire from the Lord fell from the sky. It consumed the offering, the wood, the stones, and the dirt, and licked up the water in the trench.
- When all the people saw this, they threw themselves down with their faces to the ground and said, “The Lord is the true God! The Lord is the true God!”
- When they were released, Peter and John went to their fellow believers and reported everything the high priests and the elders had said to them.
- When they heard this, they raised their voices to God with one mind and said, “Master of all, you who made the heaven, the earth, the sea, and everything that is in them,
- who said by the Holy Spirit through your servant David our forefather,
‘Why do the nations rage,
and the peoples plot foolish things?
- The kings of the earth stood together,
and the rulers assembled together,
against the Lord and against his Christ.’
- “For indeed both Herod and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles and the people of Israel, assembled together in this city against your holy servant Jesus, whom you anointed,
- to do as much as your power and your plan had decided beforehand would happen.
- And now, Lord, pay attention to their threats, and grant to your servants to speak your message with great courage,
- while you extend your hand to heal, and to bring about miraculous signs and wonders through the name of your holy servant Jesus.”
- When they had prayed, the place where they were assembled together was shaken, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak the word of God courageously.
