Ask the LORD for rain in the time of the latter rain.
The LORD will make flashing clouds;
He will give them showers of rain,
Grass in the field for everyone.
Why not ask? In the New Testament, Jesus tells us that we don’t have the things we need, because we don’t ask for them. Are we afraid to bother Him with the things we think we should be handling ourselves? Maybe we doubt He will come through for us. Surely not, that would be a lack of faith or trust. Would a good father refuse to supply his son’s needs when he had the resources to meet them? Of course not! So, do we expect less of our Heavenly Father? What? You say He as given us hundreds of promises of provision—implored us to just ask Him. So what are we waiting for? The prophet Zechariah said it very clearly: ask and He will give showers—rain of His presence, rain of His Spirit, rain of His blessing, rain of His power, rain of His love, rain of His healing. So let’s ask and get the rain.
Lord we're your children, and we are asking,
For You to send your fire!
Our hearts are hungry, our spirits are thirsty...
We need to feel the power!
Just like the prophet, said it would be,
In the last days an outpouring we'd see.
Yes, we are waiting...Anticipating,
Lord, won't You send the Holy Ghost now?
