The Hidden Life

Series: Prayer That Works

Jill Briscoe

When we think of the “heroes of the faith,” we tend to focus on the tasks they accomplished and the people they encouraged—but the things they accomplished on their feet wouldn’t have happened if they hadn’t spent time on their knees in prayer. Even Elijah had to start somewhere! He was a shepherd in a small town who cultivated “the hidden life” of prayer before God called him to change his world. 

In this message, Jill walks us through Elijah’s story, before the majestic displays of God’s glory on Mount Carmel, to a life fueled by prayer and trust in the Lord.

Scripture: 1 Kings 17 , James 5
