Prayer for Job 38

Choose Verse

Heavenly Father, it is very humbling to realise that Your wisdom and understanding is infinite and unknowable, and yet in Your grace You have shared Your plan of redemption with Your fallen creatures. Father, when I don’t understand the difficulties I am going through, in my own life, I pray that I may trust You in all things and never doubt Your perfect plans and purposes – knowing that You are sovereign, and Your way is best. Help me to live by faith and not by sight – for Your greater praise and glory, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.

“Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding.”

Prayer For Rain In A Drought

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.


“Hath the rain a father? or who hath begotten the drops of dew?”
