Pastor Richard Mansfield of News Beginnings Church and NM Prays leads us in prayer………..
Lord, we are so grateful for Your love and faithfulness. Your are Jehovah Jireh, our Provider. You have promised to meet our every need and You have never let us down. Lord, we here in the Southwest part of the USA, most especially New Mexico is experiencing a severe drought. Our land is crying out for rain, our rivers are extremely low and some have even seen portions dry up. Ranchers and Farmers are in desperate need of rain and moisture. Our forests are dangerously dry and some are already burning. With Your infinite power, send us rain! We’re asking for an abundance of rain yet without flooding or damage to our communities. Fill our rivers, lakes, wells and ground with the needed water we need. Send precipitation, moisture and rain that we long for. We ask all these things with expectant hearts in Jesus name, Amen!
One of the worst droughts in memory could mean steep cuts to irrigation water.Read in ABC News: https://apple.news/AQ-_RulgbRzmhZf-9sEec-wShared from Apple News
We need to set aside a time everyday to pray for rain……….it is so very dry here in Albuquerque! I told Sharon we probably will lose the yard when the heat comes. I see trees and shrubs dying thought the city, because they are not getting proper care. They need deep root watering. When you see your vegetation dying, it is too late to save them sometimes. We need our trees and shrubs! No forecast for rain in the near future.
Western U.S. may be entering worst drought in modern history
The stage is set for an escalation of extreme dry conditions, with widespread water restrictions expected and yet another dangerous fire season ahead.

Pastor posts this month on the drought:
I call what we are in a ‘SPIRITUAL DROUGHT’ in New Mexico and all of America. Our sins have more than caught up with us. Sodom and Gomorrah comes to mind.
Aborting God’s babies, rape, sexual addictions, phonography, so called men of God raping children, murder, drug addiction, now pot, assisted suicide, the list is getting longer. Only fools do not beleive in the wrath of God, ramifications for evil behavior. The New Mexico Legislature just passed a bill so you can get booze delivered to your home! Feeding addiction! How very stupid!
“God’s wrath is his love in action against sin.” The Wrath of God explained
When I look at the U.S. Drought Monitor, my heart sinks. Many of you know that I am a gardener. I see trees and shrubs dying all over the Albuquerque area. I am watering our trees and shrubs twice weekly right now, deep watering. Please water your trees and shrubs we need them, they are a vital part of our environment. The problem in Albuquerque is that so much vegetation is surrounded by rock and pavement. During the summer it cooks them. Zero landscape kind’a went overboard here. This week we had a dust storm, from our house it looked like a blizzard of dust in the Sandias. We already have had two fires in the Bosque NM FIRE INFO. Sadly, with all the problems Albuquerque and the state of New Mexico has, I do not think the drought is getting the attention in needs. At our local city park, the roots of all the trees are coming up out of the ground because of the drought. The ranchers in Catron County and many other places in New Mexico need rain very badly. I make a call every year, many times, for TEAM JESUS to pray for rain!
New Mexico, like all of America, is suffering from a SPIRITUAL DROUGHT!
Tony Evans explains it this way…….
He said to me, “Son of man, can these bones live?” And I answered, “O Lord God, You know.”
– Ezekiel 37:3
Spiritual dryness comes when we overextend ourselves and don’t take time to be alone with the Lord. Sin is another reason we feel dry and distant from God. The nation of Judah struggled with both of these problems. They were too busy, and they began to worship pagan gods, knowing all along that the Lord had told them, “You shall have no other gods before Me” (Deuteronomy 5:7). Yet they ignored His command and suffered for it.
