Pray For Rain

Texomans took the lack of rain and turned to God, gathering Wednesday to pray for rain.

Inheritance Adoptions held the non-denominational event at the Wichita Theatre in Wichita Falls, and asked people of all religions to ask God for drought relief.

"(We're) coming together as a community and humbly requesting from God the rain that we so desperately need," said Executive Director of Inheritance Adoptions Leslie Howard.

A few dozen people came together and silently prayed for groups that have been particularly impacted by drought conditions. A local pastor led the ceremony and talked briefly about each group, which included agriculture, medical, and banking.

"You can start with the schools, you can start with real estate, you can pretty much start with anything, but it's going to have effects that will eventually effect this entire community," said Howard.

Texomans who were at the event, believe their prayers will be answered. "I believe in prayer, and I think that God will be the one to grant it," said Wichita Falls resident Rozan Franklin.

"God is in control, and I don't think he's going to let us perish, he has promised us that," said Wichita Co. Judge Woody Gossom, who was there praying for rain. "And eventually the rains will come, maybe not on our time frame, but it will happen."
