Elijah Prayed God’s Prayer
Elijah just prayed what God wanted to pray. Here did not pray his prayer, or what he thought or what he felt. Elijah just prays God’s prayer. That’s what the phrase prayed with prayer means in this passage in James 5:17-18 where it says Elijah was a man of like passions to us, and he prayed with prayer that it should not rain; and it did not rain upon the earth three years and six months; 18 and again he prayed, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth caused its fruit to spring forth.
