West Michigan has been a dry place this summer. This is not good for those who work in agriculture. It is also not good for my rose gardens. Please pray for West Michigan to be given an abundance of rain. Ask that it falls on the just and the unjust alike. Pray that the unjust may see God's blessings and turn unto Christ Jesus.
O GOD our heavenly Father, who by thy gracious providence dost cause the former and the latter rain to descend upon the earth, that it may bring forth fruit for the use of man; We give thee humble thanks that it hath pleased thee, in our great necessity, to send us at the last a joyful rain upon thine inheritance, and to refresh it when it was dry, to the great comfort of us thy unworthy servants, and to the glory of thy holy Name; through thy mercies in Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
-Book of Common Prayer, 1662
