“A Prayer To The Redeemer Of The Rain”
August 10, 2016
Father, nothing that You bring our way is by accident nor is it intended to hurt us. You use all things for our good, even the heartbreaking experiences that threaten to break us. But instead of breaking into pieces or falling down in despair we drop to our knees and cry out to You, Father, You never waste our pain but You bring beauty out of our brokenness and loss. You replace it with eternal hope and spiritual gain. When we pray about troubles that weigh us down we know that some of which we’ve prayed will be answered as we have asked, but other matters don’t always get answered according to that which we’ve prayed. Above all, we pray for a redemptive work of Your Holy Spirit to bring about positive change, both for those we lift up in prayer and for ourselves as we look to You, Redeemer of the rain. In Christ’s name we pray. Amen.
