 About Prayer

Job 12:7-10 “But ask the animals, and they will teach you, or the birds in the sky, and they will tell you; or speak to the earth, and it will teach you, or let the fish in the sea inform you. Which of all these does not know that the hand of the LORD has done this? In his hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind.

April brings many days to pray about all of God’s creation. There is Easter and Earth Day and Arbor Day. We are in the midst of spring with the unfurling of all of the beautiful flowers. An internet search finds the poem about April Showers Bring May Flowers. Think of all the variety God has placed on our earth, of colors, sizes, and shapes of flowers, animals, and people. Take a notebook outside and list all of the colors of the rainbow and put things into categories and when finished say a thank you prayer for all God has done.

April showers bring May flowers, that is what they say. But if all the showers turned to flowers, we’d have quite a colorful day!

There’d be bluebells and cockleshells, tulips red and green, Daffodils and Chinese squill, the brightest you’ve ever seen.

You’d see tiger lilies and water lilies, carnations pink and blue, Forget-me-not and small sundrops, glistening with the dew.

We’d have fireweed and milkweed and many more different flowers. Mexican star and shooting star, falling in the showers.

And if all the showers turned to flowers on that rainy April day, Would all the flowers turn to showers in the sunny month of May?

Psalm 96:11-12 Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad; let the sea resound, and all that is in it. Let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them; let all the trees of the forest sing for joy

Prayer Vigil is April 7 from 10AM to 4PM in the sanctuary. Come in the front door!
