Prayer for rain
Lord God, source of life, without rain the earth is dry and parched and nothing can grow. There is hunger, sorrow, disease and despair. Fountain of life, the whole creation depends on you for water to nourish our life. Unless you water the earth by showers of rain, all our attempts to bring forth life is in vain. Bless us with good showers of rain, to quench the earth, that we may have life, life in abundance as you have promised us. This we ask through Jesus Christ our lord, Amen.
