    We need rain in the right time favourable to the farmers.
    I Pray that in this rain, heavy rains loss of humans, their properties and farmers harvests should not occur.

    May our Lord God protect all our lives, properties, harvests and bless abundantly.

    May our Lord God take care all of us.

    In the holy name of Jesus i do pray Amen.
