A hot, dry summer can sometimes lead to a parched spirit. The Bible is full of reminders that God is present in times of drought and times of plenty. It is as good to pray for rain as it is to pray for the living water that Jesus spoke of.

Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord,
whose trust is the Lord.
He is like a tree planted by water,
that sends out its roots by the stream,
and does not fear when heat comes,
for its leaves remain green,
and is not anxious in the year of drought,
for it does not cease to bear fruit. (Jeremiah 17:7-8)

Shower, O heavens, from above,
and let the clouds rain down righteousness;
let the earth open, that salvation and righteousness may bear fruit;
let the earth cause them both to sprout;
I the Lord have created it. (Isaiah 45:8)

He turned the desert into pools of water and the parched ground into flowing springs. (Psalm 107:35)

For this is what the Lord says: “You will see neither wind nor rain, yet this valley will be filled with water, and you, your cattle and your other animals will drink.” (2Kings 3:17)

“If anyone thirsts, let him come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, ‘Out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.’” (John 7:37-38)
