As farmers across Ireland continue to face increased pressures as a result of the above average wet winter weather, the Moderator of the Presbyterian Church in Ireland, Rt. Rev. Dr Noble McNeely wrote to ministers asking them to remember farming communities in prayer at church services over the weekend.
As temperatures soar this weekend, were these prayers answered and should those that pray use prayer for such divine interventions.
On tonight’s programme, The Reverend Gary McDowell of Greystones Presbyterian Church in County Wicklow and Patrick Semple a former Chuch of Ireland clergyman and now an atheist and author of the book “The rector who wouldn’t pray for rain”, they discuss the place and power of prayer.
