A prayer "first"

At morning devotions yesterday I was asked to pray for rain. The few days of showers that we had a couple of weeks ago have ended and the rains are now quite late. All the fields are planted (and our seeds are in the garden, too) - we need the weather to change. We are vulnerable here and very dependent on God. So many people feed their families by what they grow on their land, at least to some extent. In fact, there will be few people who don’t grow anything, so the weather affects everyone.

There was a small shower over the Congo last night and a few drops fell on the car. I suddenly realised that it was the first time in my life that I had ever prayed for rain to fall!
