John 7.37-39

Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing, tune our hearts this day.

Come, O Christ, be the Living Water; flow through us.frontcoverofcdlivingwaters

We come seeking – thirsty. Find us – quench us.

For those who thirst for knowledge, we pray your sense of wonder and imagination.

For those who thirst for justice, we pray your righteousness and your mercy.

For those who thirst for a voice, wanting to be heard, we pray your confidence.

For those who thirst for vision, seeking the path ahead, we pray your clarity and your light.

For those who thirst for peace, battling demons of sickness, grief, or mental torment, we pray your healing – of mind, body, spirit.

For those who thirst for rest, whose bodies and spirits are weary and aching, we pray your endurance and your calm.

For those who thirst for discernment, uncertain of next steps, we pray your wisdom and your guidance.

For those who thirst for reconciliation, alienated from friends, family, or home, we pray your wholeness and your communion.

For those who thirst for new life, put asunder by listlessness, fear, despair, we pray your light and your hope be made brighter and wider than all present darkness.

quench-your-thirstFor those who thirst for identity, who may feel lost or faceless in the waves of life’s currents, we pray your love and your call be made clear.

For those who thirst for wisdom, we pray your Spirit guide and assure them on their path.

For those whose thirst is real, and life-threatening, quench with clean, clear, life-sustaining waters.

For those who thirst to the depths of their being for belief, for faith, we pray for the living waters of your Son flow through them, bringing peace, hope, joy.

It is in your Son’s name we pray, Amen.
