A Water Prayer
Nourishing God, You make water spring forth from the rock.
We come to you hot and thirsty.
We praise You for the many ways we are refreshed,
body and soul, by the gift of water.
The rush of running through a sprinkler,
or wading ankle-deep in a mountain stream,
is a delight to the senses!
In Baptism we were immersed in water,
claimed, and called by You;
our thirst is quenched by this same water.
Like the woman at the well in the heat of the day,
inspire us to turn to you, Living Water,
each time our daily lives bring us back to draw water again.
In Jesus’ name, we pray.
