It took a long time for the rain to come.                                                              
The effects of the drought were burdensome.
Tree branches died from the lack of rain
Trees, not surviving, brought us pain.

We waited for months  for the rain to arrive.
We prayed to God: "Help the trees survive."
We heard thunder, and saw clouds overhead.
We knew God had heard the words we had said.

We laughed as the rain fell down on our face.
The sound of raindrops, we could not erase.
God brought us the rain because He cares,
And  He taught us about the power of prayer.
