I, however, live in west Texas where we've been in the worst drought in many, many years and last night we FINALLY got some rain. It has been SO hot and SO dry here for SO, SO long.
I didn't even mind that the girls were all riled up because of the loud thunder because it meant we were getting some much-needed moisture. So many farmers haven't planted cotton here this year because there's no water.

We have been praying for rain, my 5 year old even said at dinner last night,
"I wish it would rain. We should pray more for rain."
I told her that we could say another prayer (we were at the dinner table and had just said a prayer over our food) and she could ask for rain. She said that maybe we should ask for rain 16 times and then maybe it would rain. This is coming from the girl who likes to use 160,000 all the time. Like, "do I have to sit here in time-out for like 160,000 hours? Yeah, she's funny that way.
So, she proceeded to ask over and over for rain in her prayer.
Looks like it worked because last night we got some rain. For more than 5 minutes like the last "rainstorm."
the simple faith of a child.
What a blessing prayer is.
