A prayer for rain

The Anglican Church has always prayed for the seasons of nature for these are vital to our physical existence and well being. This prayer from the American 1928 Book of Common Prayer is most apt for these days.

A Prayer for Rain

"O God, heavenly Father, who by thy Son Jesus Christ hast promised to all those who seek thy kingdom and the righteousness thereof, all things necessary to their bodily sustenance; Send us, we beseech thee, in our necessity such moderate rain and showers, that we may receive the fruits of the earth to our comfort, and to thy honour; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen"

  2. Amen to that! We just have to pray to God that he allows rain to fall in the right time and at the right places!
