Heavy Clouds, No Rain

If only these clouds could be rain clouds (taken from Costco parking lot in Goleta, CA).


I wonder sometimes if this horrific drought in California doesn't provide an accurate picture of America's spiritual state. I'm not even referring, necessarily, to the moral collapse of a nation. I'm referring to the lack of hunger for God and the lack of unified, fervent intercessory prayer in the church. When the church prays, spiritual awakening comes to the land. Please give us rain, God. Help us pray with greater hunger and also with greater action outside the walls of the church that finds its fuel in our reliance on You.
