20 Then he [Elijah] cried out to the Lord, “O Lord my God, have you brought tragedy also upon this widow I am staying with, by causing her son to die?” 21 Then he stretched himself out on the boy three times and cried to the Lord, “O Lord my God, let this boy’s life return to him!” 22 The Lord heard Elijah’s cry, and the boy’s life returned to him, and he lived.

Bible Doctrine Notes
17:19-21 PRAYER, Petition (5.54D)

Petition and intercession are private prayers between an individual and God, they are not public prayers designed to instruct others. Elijah took the widow’s son up to the upper room where he was staying. Here he had no doubt spent many hours in prayer, such that the place had a personal history of prayer for Elijah, which probably heightened his faith for a miracle. Similarly Elijah was in his own room and shut other people out when he prayed for the Shunnamite’s son to be resurrected (see 2 Kings 4:21,32-33).
