The wisdom of your front page headline, “Praying for rain,” Jan. 4, is insightful, truthful and powerful. Indeed, prayer is a powerful thing and rightfully we can go nowhere but to the source of our provision and sustenance.
On our own volition, we can’t produce or add one more drop of water to what already exists. All we can do is argue and fight and greedily steal water from each other.
Maybe if we could stop fighting over the water, and politely ask for restoration of rain and snow, our provision would be returned. Maybe if we would understand what Scriptures teach about provision and sustenance of rain, our prayers and supplications would be heard and answered — imagine their collective strength.
Just a side note: The hydrologic cycle certainly is an engineering feat of biblical proportion. It is one of perfect purpose, plan, design and effect. We should be humbled.
