Syria needs Elijah

I was reminded of the story in 1 Kings 18 today as I read about north-eastern Syria where not a drop of rain has fallen for three years. Fittingly the article ends by quoting a local woman: Turkya says all she can now do is pray: “Pray for help, pray for the children, pray for the rain.”

Perhaps Syria could call all its clerics together to build an altar to Allah and his prophet Mohammad and then Elijah, John the Baptist, or someone else could build an altar to the God who provides living water. The God who answers with fire…and water would be the True God.
