Queensland graziers pray for rainAmy Phillips, Friday August 30, 2013 - 10:18 EST
Prayers for rain will be held this weekend on a drought-affected property in south-west Queensland.
The non-denominational service will be held near Charleville in the hope of rousing stormy clouds.
Over half of Queensland is drought declared, with many graziers in the region cutting mulga trees for stock fodder.
Lynda Worrell is organising the prayer and says it's worth a shot.
"It's very dry at the moment, so we believe that if we have people come together, maybe they have never prayed before, but if they come together and believe that we will have rain.
"As we know nobody can make it rain. Only God can gives us rain, that we will see rain."
