Alive again – Prophet Elisha prays for the woman’s dead son

Elisha had been the receiver of one of the most beautiful gestures – a room built in someone’s home just for him! 

The blessing in return was to announce the woman in the story would no longer be childless… but, then, his “gift” to the woman was taken away when the child got sick and died. 

When Elisha was called, he didn’t grab some remedial herbs or a dish of water, he ran to the room and prayed. 

When we face problems in our life, where do we turn first? Do we reach for our own solutions? Or, do we pray? Elisha didn’t stop when the boy laid still, he kept praying, and he laid on the boy to try and warm him up. Praying AND acting work hand-in-hand, but always pray first.
