My friend and neighbor, Jimmy Tobias, flies an airplane for the South Carolina Forestry Commission.

He told me Monday that 20,000 acres of forest in Pickens County are ablaze.

“We need rain,” he said.


I am not a rain maker, but I do know who holds the wind and the rain in His hands.

Could I encourage you and your family to take a moment to pray for rain?

I plan to give some simple daily suggestions in this space.

They will come from various faith traditions.


This one is a brief prayer from the Roman Catholic tradition.

O God, in Whom we live and move,

and have our being,

grant us rain, in due abundance,

that, being sufficiently helped with temporal,

we may the more confidently seek after eternal gifts.

Through Christ, our Lord.
