I'm usually pretty careful about "gimme" prayers, but I'm shamelessly begging God for some rain, and I'm asking you to do the same on our behalf. Not a lot, just for some steady rain. The last thing we need is a gully-washer. All that does is cause floods and it runs down the creek beds faster than it can soak in. No, we just need some gentle, persistent 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.
