A group of Muslim worshipers have come together in a park to pray for rain amid the worsening drought and bushfire crisis.

More than 50 men, women and children gathered at Bonython Park in Adelaide on Sunday to ask for rain to be sent to Australia’s struggling farmers and victims of the bushfires.

Priest Patrick McInerney, from the centre for Christian and Muslim Relations, joined the worshipers for prayer.

‘Today I joined with my Muslim sisters and brothers in Adelaide in prayer for rain,’ he said.

More than 50 men, women and children gathered on Sunday to ask for rain to be sent to Australia’s struggling farmers and victims of the bushfires.

The service comes a day after pilot Dick Lang, 78, and his 43-year-old son, Clayton, a surgeon, were killed in bushfires on Kangaroo Island, off the coast of South Australia.

The pair had been out fighting the blaze and were returning to a family property when they became trapped.

‘We are devastated to have lost two beloved members of our family, Dick Lang and his youngest son Clayton Lang, in such terrible circumstances,’ the family said in a statement.
