Pray for Rain


 Ask the LORD for rain
      In the time of the latter rain.
      The LORD will make flashing clouds;
      He will give them showers of rain,
      Grass in the field for everyone.
Zechariah 10:1

On Sunday we sang a song, “Rain Down”.  I do not remember all the words to the song, just the main thing, “Rain Down”.   I was reading in Zechariah 10 today and this jumped out at me!  God says to pray for rain!  In fact, it says to pray for rain in the season of rain.  This means, when it is suppose to rain, ask for a lot of rain!  

As I was reading I noticed a note I had written in the margin.  The note simple said, “Prepare for rain”.  It’s not enough to ask for rain, we must prepare for it. We must expand our capacity; we must become new wineskins, we must empty the old and prepare for the new.  Get ready for the rain.
