"Come Down Like Rain"

Give ear, O heavens, and I will speak; 
   And hear, O earth, the words of my mouth.
Let my teaching drop as the rain, 
   My speech distill as the dew, 
As raindrops on the tender herb, 
   And as showers on the grass.
For I proclaim the name of the Lord: 

   Ascribe greatness to our God.
He is the Rock, His work is perfect; 
   For all His ways are justice, 
A God of truth and without injustice;
   Righteous and upright is He.  Deuteronomy 32:1-4

He shall come down like rain upon the mown grass, 
   Like showers that water the earth.
In His days the righteous shall flourish, 
   And abundance of peace, 
Until the moon is no more. Psalm 72:6-7

O Lord, today, as we come into Your presence to bring our offerings of praise and worship before Your face I pray that we would be a blessing to You! I pray that it would be a day and a time of worship that Your people would come before You with our hearts open, ready to receive Your word as You pour it down like rain. For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, and do not return there, but water the earth, and make it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower and bread to the eater, So shall Your word be that goes forth from Your mouth; it shall not return to You void, but shall accomplish what You please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which You send it, Lord.  I pray that as You pour out Your word like rain upon Your people that we would rejoice in it knowing that a time of rain is needed to bring forth a harvest. O Father, I ask in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ that Your word would pour forth like rain in this day, this time, this season and that it would be the gospel message to the poor, healing to the brokenhearted, deliverance to the captives, recovery of sight to the blind, liberty to those who are oppressed, and the healing word to those that are sick. Father, let it rain!

God Bless!!!
