Water and the Word: Thirsty Souls
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled. (Matthew 5:6) We are thirsty souls, O God,
because thirst is your gift to us.
It awakens us to the possibilities
for which you have created us.
May the stories and plans
weaving us together form us
into a tapestry of grace for your creation.
O Lord of spring, well, lake,
river, cistern, and sea, we pray
you would heighten our perception
of the gifts you have poured out upon us,
individually and collectively, so we might
sense our corporate and personal charge
within your plan and purpose
in the particular time and place
where we find ourselves.
Give us wisdom, courage, compassion,
and humility, so we might strive
to be nothing less and nothing more
than your ambassadors of hope,
sharing clean water for all God's children;
through Jesus Christ, who is
Agua viva para nuestros cuerpos y almas
Living Water for our bodies and souls. Amen.
