The Rains Came Down, and the Floods Came Up

We are singing songs like this, Deep and Wide, Noah and the Arky...

It is raining and raining and raining. It's been non stop thunderstorms since last night. We've had about 9" of rain, and it's starting to overflow, flooding the pastures, running onto the roads.
Of course, something like this is a bit scary for us, flooding and such.
However, there is something amazing about God sending so much rain, that it pervades everything. The ground can't soak it up fast enough, the water just keeps coming down and it floods, overflows, spills over- everywhere.
What a reminder of what our prayer should be. Flood us, Holy Spirit! Pour down from heaven so much of Yourself, that we can't soak it up fast enough, that our dryness is flooded with Your graciousness, and that we're swimming in Your goodness! What a picture- so much of God's mercy and grace poured out, that it affects every area of our life! 
Yes, please, Lord, send the flood!
