If this is your first time at Crossroads, we want you to enjoy worship without any sense of obligation. In lieu of giving an offering, please tap the button to fill out our Guest Communication Card.
When you give, we have the ability to share God's love with communities here and around the world in a greater capacity. We believe the local church is the hope of the world, therefore we support its life-changing efforts with our finances.
16 Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective. 17 Elijah was a human being, even as we are. He prayed earnestly that it would not rain, and it did not rain on the land for three and a half years.
7 Husbands, in the same way be considerate as you live with your wives, and treat them with respect as the weaker partner and as heirs with you of the gracious gift of life, so that nothing will hinder your prayers.
1 Peter 3:7
THE PRAYER OF FAITH
CONNECTS TO OBEDIENCE
1 After a long time, in the third year, the word of the Lord came to Elijah: “Go and present yourself to Ahab, and I will send rain on the land.” 2 So Elijah went to present himself to Ahab.Now the famine was severe in Samaria,
1 Kings 18:1-2
8 By faith Abraham, when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going.
HEARS THE INAUDIBLE
41 And Elijah said to Ahab, “Go, eat and drink, for there is the sound of a heavy rain.”
1 Kings 18:41
ACCOMPLISHES THE IMPOSSIBLE
42 So Ahab went off to eat and drink, but Elijah climbed to the top of Carmel, bent down to the ground and put his face between his knees. 43 “Go and look toward the sea,” he told his servant. And he went up and looked.“There is nothing there,” he said.Seven times Elijah said, “Go back.” 44 The seventh time the servant reported, “A cloud as small as a man’s hand is rising from the sea.”So Elijah said, “Go and tell Ahab, ‘Hitch up your chariot and go down before the rain stops you.’ ” 45 Meanwhile, the sky grew black with clouds, the wind rose, a heavy rain started falling and Ahab rode off to Jezreel.
1 Kings 18:42-45
16 Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective. 17 Elijah was a human being, even as we are. He prayed earnestly that it would not rain, and it did not rain on the land for three and a half years. 18 Again he prayed, and the heavens gave rain, and the earth produced its crops.
Jesus clearly stated He did not come to bring religion, rules or rituals, but that we might have life to the full (John 10:10). At Crossroads you can come as you are and that doesn’t just mean what you wear on the outside; it also includes the inside. You can come with your pain, guilt, and past mistakes and find healing, grace, and hope for the future.
