Realization and Demonstration

When the servant of Elisha saw the enemy encampted round about, he was afraid. But his master understood that God's power was at hand, and that evil could not overthrow it. This understading enabled him to say to his servant, "Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them." Then he prayed that the servant's eyes might be opened, that he, too, might see the presence of God, good. And we read that after the servant's eyes were opened he saw, "and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha."

Elisha did not pray for something to happen to save them. He simply stated a fact, the truth of the everlasting supremacy of God, and then prayed that the servant's eyes might be opened to see this truth.
