Prayer on (another) rainy day

Image: James MacDonald


let your healing soak me
like the rain:
your mercy, a heavy downpour,
your reign, a summer shower

Soak me, drench
and all but drown me!

Leave me dripping
with moist anointings
of your touch:
my toes and every inch of me
refreshed and cleansed
in healing showers

Lift my face to rejoice
in the reign of your love:
let me drink it in
and drink it down,

Give me a thirst
only you can quench
and lead me
by a river of your blessings

Rain, rain,
rain of my savior:
oh, never go away...

I think we all need this prayer ... those of us in New England anyhow. These dark days are very difficult on all of us.

I really like this. I'll think differently about the rain the next couple of days (I'm sure there will be some)...love the picture choice, too.

Thanks...Sometimes it's hard to recognize Jesus in the simplest experiences of life. It reminds me to keep looking...He is there...just have to recognize Him.

Well yes, thanks, nice prayer but after only about 4 sunny days since June 5, I would rather be praying...Praised be You my Lord with all Your creatures,
especially Sir Brother Sun,
Who is the day through whom You give us light.
And he is beautiful and radiant with great splendour,
Of You Most High, he bears the likeness.
