This prayer “Prayer for a Rainy Day” by Dianne Polome helps us express our need to find God’s presence even on days when our souls feel cold.


Prayer for a Rainy Day

My soul is weary of grey skies
and rain-soaked days. Oh and
God, can a soul be cold?
Mine feels chilled to the bone.
(does a soul have bones?)
But i don’t want to wish
away my days, praying for sunshine.

I long to see you
in the midst of the clouds.
Let me hear you in this incessant rain,
be awed by you in the storms.
Still my heart and warm my being;
pour out your Spirit into mine,
oh God of wonders.
