Catholic Prayer: Prayer for Rain


Farmers and gardeners alike all have to pray for rain periodically.

This prayer can be said in conjunction with the novena to St. Isidore.


O God, in Whom we live and move, and have our being, grant us rain, in due abundance, that, being sufficiently helped with temporal, we may the more confidently seek after eternal gifts. Through Christ, our Lord. Amen.
