At first I felt silly, this asking for prayer about rain. Does God really care about my cap and gown pictures? Is this even on His radar screen? Shouldn't I spend my prayer time asking for healing and salvation and, you know, the big spiritual things?
"Ask and you will receive, that your joy may be full." (John 16:24 ESV)He doesn't say, "Ask about only the big things; I'm way too busy for the small requests." He's in everything, every moment, big or small.
And so I prayed, very specifically asking for rain to stop and the clouds to remain. Those clouds that I knew would create the softest creamy light for faces in front of my lens.
And my tiny request was answered by the God of creation.
For only one hour, I had the most perfect window of rainless cloudy skies.
And that brings me joy.
