Thank you God for the cleansing rain and clearing thunder.
May your elemental power renew all that was dry and wilting,
within us, around us and without us.
Wash away the dust which settles on my heart.
Refresh my spirit with air washed clean.
Bring me the gift of your hope, with the first rays of sun.
Mine has been battered, storm tossed and bedraggled.
Yours is eternal, indestructible and innate.
I pray, guide me to draw on it, whenever mine should fail.
After the storm comes new life, pray, open my eyes to see.
