Dear God, we cry to You to send rains to the parched lands of Texas. Lord the rains have been withheld and our fields are becoming like a dust bowl and Lord there is not a single cloud in the sky – and yet You are God and You are the one who poured out rain on the land, when Elijah prayed – and like him Lord we come to You and pray that You would send clouds with rain, much rain and an abundance of rain for the land is dying and we are in great need.
Lord our hope is in You and our trust is in You. Without You Lord we could not survive in this land and we know and acknowledge that fact and so we cry out together to hear our prayers for rains to drench the earth and bring new life to a land that is thirsty and arid.
Forgive us Lord for the times that we have not thanked You for Your ongoing provision – but do not hold that to our account, for You have promised to send water to the earth in due season and so we look to You Lord - we look to You, for our hope is in You alone – for we have no one to help save You.
Heavenly Father, how privileged we are to have such an astonishing peep into the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord, in Ezekiel's amazing vision, when You were You seated on Your heavenly throne and surrounded by the appearance of a rainbow in the clouds on a rainy day and transported by four magnificent living creatures. No words are sufficiently worthy to convey the greatness of Your glory... and yet in Your goodness and grace You pitied the state of Your fallen creatures and gave Your only begotten Son to become the perfect sacrifice for our sin. There are no words to express how great is Your endless wisdom; boundless power and awesome purity. Praise Your holy name, AMEN.Source: Verse of the day for Ezekiel 1:28
