I never thought I would pray for rain, but with the forrest fire situation surrounding our community and the nearby town of Kirkland Lake, that is something that we desperately need right now!
This afternoon the winds shifted and smoke from a huge fire to the west of the city started dropping over the area, leaving the sky an eerie colour and changing the sun in a way I've never seen before (see photo).
Unfortunately the smoke creates an issue for people like my grandfather who has respiratory problems.
Your prayers for heavy rain and the winds to change would be greatly appreciated!
"Elijah was as human as we are, and yet when he prayed earnestly that no rain would fall, none fell for three and a half years! Then, when he prayed again, the sky sent down rain and the earth began to yield its crops." (James 5:17-19)
