Here's an idea: Whenever you ask for some natural rain to pour down in this area, you can ask for some spiritual rain, too!
Take a look at Psalm 63:1-5...try praying the words back to God as a prayer for yourself, your family & friends, the people of Sioux Center, Northwest Iowa, the United States and beyond!
"O God, You are our God;
May we earnestly search for You!
May our souls thirst for You;
May our whole bodies long for You
in this parched and weary land
where there is no water.
May we see you in Your sanctuary
and gaze upon Your power and glory
Let us always remember that Your unfailing love is better than life itself;
how we praise You!
May we praise You as long as we live,
lifting up our hands to You in prayer.
May You satisfy us more than the richest feast.
We will praise You with songs of joy."
Don't stop here! Check out some other Psalms or Apostolic Prayers and pray-read those, too. Don't know what Apostolic Prayers are? Basically they're prayers throughout the New Testament that apostles prayed for the Body of Christ. HOME has a list of them in the Prayer Room on the West wall. Come check 'em out!
