A PRAYER FOR RAIN

... Can the heavens give showers! Are You not He, O Lord our God! Therefore we will wait for You -expectantly; for You have made all these things. For He spoke, and it was done; He commanded, and it stood fast.

Jeremiah 14:22; Psalm 33:9

Loving Lord,You are the living God, who gives us, the children of this world, richly all things to enjoy. All power is given unto You in heaven and in earth. Because You did speak, and it was done; You did command, and it stood fast! Yes! Father, it is in Your power to send abundant rain on the earth and thus bless its inhabitants and also to stop it from raining. I do not in the least; hesitate to confess Your power and authority even over nature. Father, the Bible tells us that the heaven is shut up and there is no rain when we sin against You. If our sins be the reason for this drought, Lord I plead for Your forgiveness. Graciously forgive us O Lord our sins and forget them according to the multitude of Thy tender mercies. Lord have mercy on us and for a moment think about our plight - struggle for drinking water, crops failing and cattle dying. Our hearts have also grown weak constantly anxious over the future. But I know Lord that You are in perfect control and You would definitely hear our cries and open the windows of heaven and rain all over our Land. I give You all the Praise and Glory Master, in Jesus' name I ask.Amen.
