Pause for Prayer: TUESDAY 8/23

A summer's drought has parched and burned the season's vegetation so this afternoon's rain, this evening's showers have been most welcome! Here's the latest version of a prayer I've been tweaking over the years since I first posted it in 2008...

Let your healing soak me, Lord,
as a hard, steady rain:
    your mercy, a heavy downpour,
    your reign, a summer shower...

Soak me, drench me
- all but drown me!

Leave me dripping, wet
with moist anointings
of your freely given grace:
    my toes and every inch of me
    refreshed and cleansed
    in showers strong and bracing...

Lift my face in joy, Lord,
refresh me with your rain:
    let me drink it in
    and drink it down, deep,
    until my thirst for you is quenched...

Rain, rain, reign of God,
rain down on me
and never, ever go away...
