1 Kings - Highlights & Notes <<1 | 2
He stretched himself upon the child three times, and cried unto the
Lord, and said, O Lord my God, I pray thee, let this child's soul
come into him again. And the Lord heard the voice of
Elijah; and the soul of the child came into him again, and he
revived. (1st Book of Kings 17:21-22, KJV) - One of the best healing scriptures and Bible verses about faith. Elijah
performs this miracle. Jesus was not the only man to perform revival miracles like this in the Holy Bible. All men are
capable of this. More info on Elijah can be found on the Elijah List website.

See how this man seeketh mischief: for he sent unto me for my wives, and for my children, and for my silver, and for my gold; and I denied him not... Tell my lord the king, All that thou didst send for to thy servant at the first I will do: but this thing I may not do. (1Ki 20:7-9)
