We continue to pray for California. We are praying for rain and the safety for all. The drought is so very bad in the southwest. Here in New Mexico we are dry as a bone, rivers like the Rio Grande and creeks are drying up. Cattle ranchers are having to sell their cattle or pay big time for hay. Catron County has been hit hard with drought conditions. United States Drought Monitor
Folks, if you are not deep watering the roots of your trees and shrubs you are putting them in danger. I did it this week as the conditions here on the west side of Albuquerque are very bad. America is also in a Spiritual Drought!
Prayer For Abundant Rain In Drought
Loving Lord and Heavenly Father, You alone are good and You alone richly provide for all the needs and the necessities of life, and in Your loving-kindness You give us over and above all that we ask or think. Thank You for Your steadfast love and gracious provision to us and to all Your creation.
Forgive us for the times when we have taken Your provision for granted and the times when we have failed to thank You and give You the honour and gratitude that You deserve. Thank You, that even though we have failed to acknowledge all that You give us day by day, You faithfully provide us richly all things to enjoy. But Lord, we come to You now, knowing that we are facing a drought in this region and we ask You to send abundant rain on the earth, which has become dry, thirsty and arid.
Look down in pity our plight we pray. It is not only the plants that are wilting, but even the animals and people in this place are parched and dry. Oh Lord, send us rain. Open the windows of heaven we pray with the sweet rainfall that we so desperately need, and water our land we pray, and we will give You all the praise and glory due to Your holy name,
“You visit the earth and water it abundantly, enriching it greatly. God’s stream is filled with water, for You prepare the earth in this way, providing [people] with grain.”
Damage from California’s wildfires estimated at $10 billion, experts say
“We spend about $2.5 billion on CAL FIRE firefighting in the State of California each year,” said Stanford researcher Michael Wara. “If we spend about that much money, we could do a lot to make this problem much less of a kind of frontline crisis.”
