So Dry...

Good morning! This little Heartlight daily reminder for today that my husband sent me is so moving. Our wonderful Texas and New Mexico are burning up and need rain relief so badly. It is going to 104 degrees here today and 107 in Abilene. I know so many people are praying fervently for rain. I pray also for relief from spiritual dryness and discouragement.
Please join us in prayer! Blessings, Amy

VERSE:
You gave abundant showers, O God; you refreshed your weary inheritance.
-- Psalm 68:9

THOUGHT:
Dryness, whether spiritual or physical, is sapping to the spirit and
wilting to all living things. Let's join our hearts together today, tens of
thousands strong, praying that God will do two
things: (1) that he bring rain and refreshment on those lands that are
parched and where times are hard; and (2) that he will refresh all of his
servants who are discouraged and close to giving up in their difficulties,
challenges, temptations, discouragements, and failures. Let's pray for today
to be a day of refreshment and the beginning of revival in our world and
among God's people!

PRAYER:
Lord God Almighty, the one able to do more than all we ask or imagine,
today, we join our voices and our hearts in asking you for refreshment for every land and every heart parched and wilted. Send your rains on the drought laden parts of our world. And dear Father, please bring revival throughout our world in our churches and the hearts of those who serve you.
We ask this together in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and King. Amen.

Oh Amy before I even pulled up your post..seeing the title I started to pray Lord we need your spiritual rain and your physical rain. So many are dying spiritually...so many are so dry spiritually...we need your rain. Then I started reading...I agree and say Amen!...yes Lord.
