Seven times Elijah told his servant to go and look towards the sea.
The seventh time the servant reported, ‘A cloud as small as a man’s hand is rising from the sea.’ So Elijah said ‘Go and tell Ahab, ‘Hitch up your chariot and go down before the rain stops you.’ 1 Kings 18:44
Today you are invited to consider how expectant you are that God will answer the nation’s prayers for rain. How often do you pray the same request? Is it always on your mind or do you tire of asking? How can you save the precious resources God has placed on this earth so that all may benefit? If you live in an area where there is plenty of water, will you pray with us for rain for Africa where resources are drying up? Wherever you live, what can you do to help? What does God want you to do? Spend time with Him today asking for rain to fall wherever there is drought in His world; praise Him for hearing and responding to your prayers and be expectant that He will answer. Where is your umbrella?
May God bless you with the gift of rain in areas where there is little water today for the love of your fellow men and women around the world.
