Prayers for Farmers

Guys the farmers and ranchers around Brady Texas are hurting for rain after 5 dry years of the last 6. There are good rain chances there today and tomorrow. Please take a moment and say a prayer for these good folks to get the rain they badly need, they are in big trouble there. Many thanks friends.
