Praying For Rain

The Bible says it rains on the just and unjust alike. By some estimates, depending on translation, water is mentioned 722 times in the Bible. Water is important! So important that one only has to wait for the second verse in the entire Bible (Genesis 1:2) for water to be mentioned.


Israel shares some of California’s climate and weather patterns. Rain and snow melt are very big deals.

If you know of any such gatherings, please share this information with us. Also, if you have a testimony or prayer request, please share as well.
