A Statewide Call to Pray - Day Thirty-Three!

Tracy Hamlin is a dear friend from Oklahoma.  Yes, Texans can love Oklahoma!  He is a member of Church on the Rock in Oklahoma City where my mentor and friend, Dr. John Benefiel serves.  John also apostolically oversees the Heartland Apostolic Prayer Network, with which TXAPN is covenantly aligned.

Tracy sent me the words of this song which he wrote (Ryan Kirkpatrick of Church on the Rock set it to music).  I believe it speaks of our great desire to see the Lord restore rain to our land.  But is about more than rain.  It speaks of the flood of God's Spirit and the transforming of our state and nation into kingdom transformation.

The Smell of the Rain
Words by Tracy Hamlin ©2009

Verse 1

I hear a sound, like a roaring thunder.
I see the clouds, so full of wonder.
I smell the rain, coming nearer.
I hear Your voice, becoming clearer.


Rain, rain, we need Your rain.
Flood us Lord, with Your Spirit.
Marking the ground, taking over this land.
We give ourselves, into Your hands.
Rain, rain, we need Your rain.

Verse 2

Revival comes, the floods show it now.
Transform us Lord, You’re teaching us how.
Reaching into the earth, You’re lifting the curse,
Come live among us, abiding forever.

The smell of the rain, overwhelming rain, the flooding rain, the refreshing rain.
Holy Spirit rain, send down the rain, we need Your rain, the refreshing rain.
Send Your rain! Send Your rain!
