The Jews welcomed the former rain, the rain that fell in the autumn which softened the ground ready for planting. Pray for the rain of the Spirit to soften the ground – first in our own hearts, then in our neighbourhood. Soon the Word will be going forth at Christmas, through nativity plays, carol concerts, Christmas cards and even the canned music in supermarkets. Pray for the ground to be softened in readiness for the divine seed. Pray for rain. And then pray for the Word that has been spoken to take root, grow and produce shoots.
