Praying for Rain



Things are getting desperate down here in Georgia. The drought still lingers and Atlanta is running out of water. The Georgia Baptist Convention has asked its members to pray for rain today.

I grew up Baptist so I realize that they are seldom at a loss for words...but I thought I’d offer these up anyway.

43. For Rain

O God, heavenly Father, who by thy Son Jesus Christ hast promised to all those who seek thy kingdom and its righteousness all things necessary to sustain their life: Send us, we entreat thee, in this time of need, such moderate rain and showers, that we may receive the fruits of the earth, to our comfort and to thy honor; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Anytime you might need a good prayer, The Book of Common Prayer is a good place to look. Most of them can be found in Prayers and Thanksgivings but there are others throughout the book.
