SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO
Location: Sage Ranch Park, Simi Valley, California
This is a prayer for rain. I have had some success with it recently; soon after I said my first prayer for rain in the mountains around Los Angeles, we had a beautiful rain for two or three days … a very gentle rain. So I thought: Maybe I ought to do that more often.
So today I came back to the mountains, that are sprouting up green and beautiful, and I said the prayer again. And I thought I would repeat it for you. It is not perfect yet; it is just a start. It goes like this …

Prayer for Rain
by Alice B. Clagett
10 March 2014
May rains come to California.
May they be gentle rains,
and just enough
to nourish the plants and animals and peoples
of this fair land.
And all over the world,
where people and plants and animals need the rain,
let there be gentle rains.
And in places where there is too much rain,
may the rain stop.
. . . . .
Today in California, I am thinking maybe four days’ worth of gentle rains might be good … but you will know better.
I say this prayer as I am walking. If you like it, or some variation about it, maybe you would like to try it too. It is terrific, if you say the prayer, and then it rains!
So. Gentle rains to you … or lack thereof … depending on the needs of your community and the Earth where you stand.
