b: prayer

What: "The evaporation is like prayer. When there is no evaporation of God's Word, your life becomes very dry. Nothing much is happening. You don't see God's hand very often. But if you are full of God's Word, you will pray that Word back to him and the answers will shower down upon you. Your life will no longer be a desert, but a lush place."
