Psalm 147 He covers the sky with clouds; he supplies the earth with rain and makes grass grow on the hills. (v.8)

There’s a story I read about childlike faith in action. A rural town was desperate for rain, so…

The ministers of many of the local churches decided to gather for an afternoon of prayer for rain. Each person was asked to bring an “object of faith” for inspiration. The town’s people came with their crosses, rosaries, and Bibles clutched in their hands.

They prayed for an hour asking the Lord to bring rain to their water starved land. Suddenly the town’s people felt the sprinkling of rain on their cheeks. They jumped and shouted for joy. People began turning towards the middle of crowd. There in their midst was an “object of faith” that outshone all the others. A small 9-year-old child stood holding an umbrella. (Paraphrased from Chicken Soup for the Christian Soul)

That child brought his “faith umbrella” to their time of prayer. He understood that we pray, God hears, and God answers. If God supplies rain for the earth, don’t you think He will supply what you need? Go with a childlike expectancy before the Lord, knowing that He desires to answer your prayers.

Esther 7:1-10; Psalm 146, Acts 19:11-20; Luke 4:14-30


Until next time blessings and healing
