Living Lord and heavenly Father, You alone are good and You alone richly provide for all the needs and the necessities of life – and in Your loving-kindness You give us over and above all that we ask or think. Thank You for Your steadfast love and gracious provision to us and to all Your creation.
Forgive us the times when we have taken Your provision for granted and the times when we have failed to thank You and give You the honour and gratitude that You deserve – and thank You that even though we have failed to acknowledge all that You give us day by day You faithfully provide us richly all things to enjoy. But Lord we come to You now, knowing that we are facing a drought in this region and we ask You to send abundant rain on the earth, which has become dry, thirsty and arid.
Look down in pity our plight we pray. It is not only the plants that are silting but even the animals and people on this place are parched and dry – and send us the rain that we so desperately need. Open the windows of heaven we pray with the sweet rainfall that we so desperately need and water our land we pray - and we will give You all the praise and glory due to Your holy name,
Dear Lord, we are facing a sever drought and we plead with You to open the heavens and send rain on this dry and thirsty land. Lord we know that You are the one that sends the rain and You are the one that can withhold the rain, but we pray that You would look down in pity on our waterless land and send the rain to water the land, reviving the land and the people.
Lord we do not deserve You grace and mercy, for we have not loved and served You as we should – but You are long-suffering and of great goodness and You would send rivers of water over the vegetation and fill up the water-hold and well – for the earth is parched and we do not know what to do.
Lord for Your Holy Names sake we ask that You would send the rains in this land soon, for we have no hope but You – for You have promised to give rain upon the earth and send water on the fields – You have promised that the seasons will not fail and that the harvest will continue to provide their bounty – but without the life-giving water, we are going to have to face very severe consequences. In Your mercy send us rain in the dry and dusty land, we pray in Jesus name.
