There is a song I want to share with you today. For the past week, many songs which did not catch my attention before suddenly starts to grab me. This one in particular lifts my spirit and imparts hope in the midst of bad news. A close friend’s mother had a relapse of cancer. In a time when all of them need to be strong for each other, they discovered some disappointing and selfish attitudes within the family. My heart breaks for her. If you’re the praying sort, please pray for family harmony, for reconciliation, for physical and spiritual healing and for God’s grace and love to be evident in this family. Pray also for peace in Lebanon and Israel, for God to tear down barriers to a fair and peaceful resolution, for forgiveness, for mercy. And for all who are hurting, lonely and suffering ……. to be washed in Heaven’s rain.

Healing Rain by Michael W. Smith

Healing rain is coming down
It’s coming nearer to this old town
Rich and poor, weak and strong
It’s bringing mercy, it won’t be long

Healing rain is coming down
It’s coming closer to the lost and found
Tears of joy, and tears of shame
Are washed forever in Jesus’ name

Healing rain, it comes with fire
So let it fall and take us higher
Healing rain, I’m not afraid
To be washed in Heaven’s rain

Lift your heads, let us return
To the mercy seat where time began
And in your eyes, I see the pain
Come soak this dry heart with healing rain

And only You, the Son of man
Can take a leper and let him stand
So lift your hands, they can be held
By someone greater, the great I Am

Healing rain, it comes with fire
So let it fall and take us higher
Healing rain, I’m not afraid
To be washed in Heaven’s rain

To be washed in Heaven’s rain…

Healing rain is falling down
Healing rain is falling down
I’m not afraid
I’m not afraid…
