We pray for life giving rain.
For the men and women who grow crops and care for animals that produce food.
For all children who live in drought areas who may not have basic needs being met at this time.
For all in drought affected areas who suffer depression and anxiety because they have lost hope.
For ourselves that we will generously support our neighbours battling drought.
