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 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, You have promised give Your people their rain in due season so that the land may bring forth its increase. You have promised to send the early and the latter rains and we thank You for Your faithfulness in watering the land of Israel for so many years.
Lord we come again to pray that You would refill us like the Sea of Galilee and pour refreshing rains on the land, so that the rivers will be filled and the land will blossom and bloom and yield its harvest in due season.
Lord as a nation Israel had strayed far from You and has even failed to recognise their Saviour and King - and yet You have not forgotten Your own chosen people and have continued to bless them, despite their unbelief and blindness to the truth of the glorious gospel of Christ. Father we pray for Israel, that You would send an abundance of rain to fill up the depleted reservoirs of water.
Water Your land and bless Your people, Israel we pray and we pray that many may come to recognise the Lord Jesus as their God and Saviour, in Whose name we pray,
