How you can pray about bad weather

Q: There are constantly so many storms and things now. How can I pray about bad weather?

A: It was my first year as a counselor at a summer camp for Christian Scientists. One night, in the very early hours of the morning, a major storm rolled in. 

I was the first one in the cabin to wake up, and I heard deep rumbles in the distance, accompanied by flashes of lightning that happened what felt like almost every second. I looked outside, and even though it was nighttime, I could still see the dark clouds racing across the sky faster than I’ve ever seen clouds roll by. I knew the storm was headed our way.
