Loving God, there are times when the discomforts we experience, as we do now with the drought and heat, can be a reminder to us of our dryness in prayer and our relationship with you. The drought we allow in our heart can only be watered by our turning to You, our Creator. We pray, then, that the severe lack of rain and cool air, the relief needed by Earth and all who are suffering will come bringing blessing. Our prayer is in gratitude for your gifts of coolness and Sister Water. Amen.
