Prayer for Rain 

Lord, you are the Most High, you are high mighty, and there is none like you. I come to you today in the name of Jesus Christ, and I bless your name, I worship you, and I acknowledge that you are God over all the earth.

Father, I confess my sins, and I ask you to forgive me and cleanse me of all unrighteousness. And forgive even those sins that I’m not aware of. 

 My Lord, I know that you favor them who fear you. And just like Elijah prayed for rain in 1 Kings 18:41-19:8, I also pray. 

Lord, may you send rain to our land now. I declare, and I decree that in this place they shall be an abundance of rain, prosperity, fulfillment, happiness, joy, peace, freedom, good health, long life, and your protection. 

Oh lord, rebuke the devourer for our sake according to Malachi 3:11.

Father, I stand on your word, and I know that you are God, the Lord that answers prayer. So I bless and thank you in Jesus’ name, amen
