SACBC Prays for More Rain in the Drought Striken Areas

Comments Off on SACBC Prays for More Rain in the Drought Striken Areas

The serious negative impact of Climate Change is a call to conversion towards a better way of caring for the earth.  We have seen how much the people in the Cape are suffering because of lack of rain; therefore lack of water. Few years ago the whole of  South Africa was hit by a terrible drought, to the extent that even the big rivers dried up. On the other hand we have seen the extremes of heavy and unfriendly rains causing big floods which ended up damaging properties and killing people instead of helping us to survive. Some few days ago we have seen the terrible hail storms killing people and destroying property and plants in the neighbouring Lesotho.  All these are a clear sign that that the creation is not at peace.  Seemingly there is still a lot going to happen.

SACBC would like to invite you to continue praying for more rain, especially in those areas where there is drought and a shortage of water, like in the Cape, we continue to thank God for the blessings of rain in some parts of our region.  Below is the attachment of prayer for rain, as prepared by Southern Africa Catholic Bishops’ Conference.  Read the rest of SACBC Prays for More Rain in the Drought Striken Areas »
