Prayer for Rain
God our Creator,
Maker of all things and protector of your people,
In your love look upon us in our time of need
and give us your help.
Open the heavens for us and send us the rain
we need for our lives and crops.
As our hearts long for you,
so we seek rain to refresh the earth;
As we long for life,
so let the earth produce its harvest in abundance.
May we rejoice in the good things of the earth
and raise our eyes to you, the source of all blessings.
Hear our cry for mercy and answer our prayer
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
