Praying for Rain

My church has been using the prayer for rain for several months:

O God, heavenly Father, who by thy Son Jesus Christ hast promised to all those who seek thy kingdom and its righteousness all things necessary to sustain their life: Send us, we entreat thee, in this time of need, such moderate rain and showers, that we may receive the fruits of the earth, to our comfort and to thy honor; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. (Book of Common Prayer p. 828)

We have been having a lot of cold gray weather with rain on and off, and I think of the prayer and don't complain so much.
