In anticipation of this week's 24/3 prayer, Vijay speaks on the relationship between spiritual drought and prayer. Fleshing out the story of Elijah's prayer for rain in 1 Kings 18, he suggests three things: 1) spiritual drought is the result of idolatry. He notes that compromise is idolatry, as much as a wholehearted devotion to anything other than God. 2) Spiritual abundance is the result of repentance. And repentance is something that God initiates in our life as he woos us with his love. 3) Prayer is when the forgiven and faith-filled people of God lay hold of God's willingness to bless and fill us with his abundance.
