Prayer Request - Drought

Boats sit on the dry, cracked bottom in a dry cove at Morse Reservoir in Noblesville, Ind., Monday, July 16, 2012. The reservoir is down nearly 6 feet from normal levels and being lowered 1 foot every five days to provide water for Indianapolis. (AP Photo/Michael Conroy)

This was sent to me by a friend asking for prayers for the drought. I have experienced it too. To and from work on the train I pass two wet lands/ponds, often filled with ducks, geese, egrets, and some others I don’t know by name. They are both now completely dry, the dirt cracked. Here is her appeal:

As evidenced by people living in Colorado, Oklahoma, West Texas and South Texas, New Mexico, throughout the entire Midwest and ever increasing areas in other parts of the country, the drought condition is reaching critical status; cattle are being auctioned off; crops have burned up; and drinking water is becoming a concern. Please join us in this prayer circle.

Let’s make this one of the largest prayer circles ever. It will be as though everyone is holding hands around the world.

Dear Heavenly Father, You said whatsoever any two or more come together and agree and ask in Your Son's name, it shall be given. We come to you, humbly, and ask that you bring down the rain to our parched lands. Our farmers and ranchers need it desperately, as well as our firefighters. We ask this all in Jesus' name. Amen.

Please pass this prayer request on to your circle of friends!
