“Elijah was a man with a nature like ours, and he prayed earnestly that it would not rain, and it did not rain on the earth for three years and six months. Then he prayed again, and the sky poured rain and the earth produced its fruit.” James 5:17-18
Lord God, as our county moves into recovery from the Black Forest Fire, we pray for other counties across our state that our dealing with fires. We pray for protection of lives and structures, and for the resources to fight the fires. We also pray for the kind of community cooperation and support that we have benefitted from in El Paso County. Lord of the wind and the rain, we cry out for rain and steady moisture in our drought-ridden state.
