The community of Stamford, Texas, is calling on God to send a "season of rain" and end the drought.
Residents, including farmers and ranchers whose livelihoods are at stake, came out to seek God's blessing. They gathered in a large circle, holding hands as prayers went up.
"Heavenly Father, we do ask Your blessing on us and wet this land down, so we can be productive for You," one resident prayed.
Rancher Andrew Holloway said he was forced to sell all of his cattle. The drought has sent corn prices up, making cattle feed more expensive.
"Last year we had to sell all of our cows, over 500 cows because of the drought and basically I've been unemployed now for about a year just because there's not anything to feed our cows," he said.
Nevertheless, Stamford residents say they're not giving up hope.
