Pray For Rain

Prayer has all but been eliminated from all facets of public life. However, every once in awhile it makes a comeback, primarily this occurs when people really, really, really want something.

Lubbock, Texas currently wants rain. Their mayor has encouraged all citizens of Lubbock to pray and fast on Sunday for rain. The town tried this back in 2004 and it worked!

“Nobody is going to tell God what to do and what not to do, but we are in a serious drought in West Texas and since he is the man who controls the rain clouds, we’re asking him for his mercy and his help,” Mayor David Miller told the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal.

One thought on “Pray For Rain”

  1. Well, at least the townspeople give God the credit for the 2004 rains.

    The typical American approach to national prayer is to pray for God’s help, then refuse to give Him the credit when our prayers are answered. I seem to remember something in the Bible about nine lepers.
