A Prayer for Rain

Photograph by Hotblack from Morguefile.com

Many part of the nation are in serious drought.  Here is a prayer for rain.

Lord, we confess we do not always understand your ways or your methods of dealing with your children.  We do not always see the lessons you would teach us from the events of this life, nor do we claim enough wisdom to understand your will.  We would never presume to instruct you on what is right or what is good.

Yet, we cannot help but to ask for rain.  The earth, which cries out for your redemption, also cries out in thirst to restore its parched soil.  Those whose livelihoods depend upon the land call for your mercy.  Those who will go hungry without water for their crops look to you for a demonstration of your compassion.  Cities are in need.  Hear the prayers of these people, and send the showers we need.

O God, may we never take for granted the basic needs of life.  May we always remember the fragile nature of life and how dependent we are on your grace each and every day.

In the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord…..
