Morning by Morning, August 29 - Fervent Prayer that the Rain Would Stop

Morning by Morning, August 29 - Fervent Prayer that the Rain Would Stop


Good morning, Lord Jesus. I look up to You and speak up to You and welcome You to take hold of me and speak into me, as I seek to begin my day in communion with You -- Father, Son, and Holy Spirit of God.  ... 
"Elijah was a human being like us, and he prayed fervently that it might not rain, and for three years and six months it did not rain on the earth" (James 5:17). 
O Lord, as we hear and see the overwhelming devastation of the rains that continue to pour down and the waters that continue to rise up along the Texas coast and Gulf of Mexico, we're moved to cry out to You in prayer and call on Your name in faith. You moved in Elijah's heart to pray fervently that it might not rain. And Lord, that's our prayer for this region overwhelmed by these floods and desperate for a miraculous move of God. Father God, in the name of Jesus, let the rain stop and begin to dry up the land. 
Your Word calls us to both humility and faith in our prayers -- humility to seek You and faith to believe You, humility to be available to pray and intercede as You lead by Your Spirit and faith to trust that You're putting Your prayers on our hearts to pray according to Your will. "Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we ought, but that very Spirit intercedes with sighs too deep for words. And God, who searches the heart, knows what is the mind of the Spirit because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God" (Romans 8:26-27). 
I believe Your Spirit is leading us to pray in humility and faith for the rain to stop and the land to dry up. I believe Your Spirit is leading us to pray for protection and provision of all who are suffering and for suffering souls to be saved as they cry out to You in their distress.  "They cried to the Lord in their trouble, and He brought them out from their distress; He made the storm be still, and the waves of the sea were hushed. Then they were glad because they had quiet, and He brought them to their desired haven. Let them thank the Lord for His steadfast love, for His wonderful works to humankind" (Psalm 107:28-31). 
Move in the hearts of Your sons and daughters to pray like Elijah, in humility and faith. By the power of Your grace, may our fervent, earnest prayers, led by Your Spirit, be "powerful and effective" (James 5:16). And may we trust in Your Word when You said, "Truly I tell you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. Again, truly I tell you, if two of you agree on earth about anything you ask, it will be done for you by My Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered in My name, I am there among them" (Matthew 18:18-20). In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

I pray in agreement with you and all who are led to join us in prayer by the Holy Spirit that the rain would stop in this coastal region of Texas and the Gulf of Mexico, and all who are suffering in the wake of this storm would experience the protection and provision of our God, in Jesus' name! May the presence of God in His mercy and love and through His people be evident in the midst of it all. And may this terrible storm be turned into a great harvest. God bless you, my friend!

Isa  43:2

NLT When you go through deep waters, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown.
