Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Whether spiritual or physical, dryness is sapping to the spirit and wilting to all living things. Let's join our hearts together today, ten of thousands strong,* praying that God will do two things:
  • That God will bring rain and refreshment on those lands that are parched and where times are hard.
  • That God will refresh all his servants who are discouraged and close to giving up, trapped in difficulties, challenges, temptations, discouragements, and failures.
  • Let's pray for today to be a day of refreshment and the beginning of a revival for our world and among God's people!

    * Over 300,000 people in 190 countries will read this devotional today, so please, let's not underestimate the importance of each of us participating together in this prayer!

My Prayer...

Lord God Almighty; you can do more than we ask or imagine. We join our voices and hearts today, asking you for a time of refreshment for every land, parched heart, and wilted spirit. Please send your rains to the drought-laden parts of our world. And dear Father, please bring revival by pouring out the Holy Spirit in a fresh way throughout our world, in our churches, and into the hearts of those who serve you. We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and King. Amen.
