What on earth has happened to the Summer Sunshine?! What a huge amount of rain we seem to have had this week or so.
I wonder how many showers you have managed to dodge?
Perhaps you’re one of those people who really likes the rain, and this weather is just what you need.
I, personally think it would be great if the rain came at night time, and the sun shone daily! 😎
This rain has however kept reminding me of the song we sang last Sunday during our Pentecost meetings, and how we need to stop dodging the Spiritual rain that we need, or shelter from the showers God sends.
I pray these words and invite you to do the same:
Holy Spirit, rain down,
Oh comforter and friend, how we need your touch again,
Holy Spirit, rain down,
Let your fire fall, let your voice be heard,
Come and change our hearts as we stand on your word.
Holy Spirit, rain down.
Hear our prayer O Lord. Amen.
“Prayer is the simplest form of speech, that infant lips can try;
Prayer the sublimest strains that reach the majesty on high.”
James Montgomery, SASB 784
