Elijah and the Angel
After speaking to Ahab, Elijah went with his servant to the top of Mt. Carmel to pray. He had his servant go look towards the sea to watch for a sign from God. Eventually, a small cloud did appear on the horizon, and Elijah knew that this meant the end of the drought was near.
When Ahab told Jezebel all that Elijah had done to Baal's prophets, she was enraged. She hated God and His holy prophets and said that on the following day she would have Elijah killed.
On hearing this, Elijah fled to Beersheba, once again going alone into the wilderness. He felt very unhappy because he had so many enemies who wanted to kill him; many of his friends were dead, and he was disappointed with the wickedness of the people and the way they served Baal and not God. For a moment, he gave up all hope and cried out to God, "O Lord, take away my life."
But it was not yet time for Elijah to die. God sent an angel to comfort the prophet. As he slept, the angel came to him and touched him and encouraged him to eat and drink and stay strong. After he regained his strength, Elijah went to Horeb and was there for forty days and forty nights, fasting the entire time.
