God of Living Water –
We come to you on today, acknowledging that we have tried to quench the thirsts of our lives in so many ways. We have sought to quench our thirsts with people, money, things, accomplishments, recognition, and so much more. We admit that when we do not seek you first, we remain thirsty.
Lord, we confess that you are the one who can quench every thirst we have – especially the thirsts of our soul. We confess that our personal priorities have at times risen above the concerns of Christ and in pursuing our personal priorities we become parched. Lord, we confess that our actions have also caused others to be less than satisfied and their thirst persists due to our lack of witness, refusal to share, and feelings that we are not our brother’s or our sister’s keeper.
Lord, forgive us for not drinking from your well. Forgive us for not sharing the refreshment we have received from you with those who are dry and thirsty around us. And Lord, forgive us for not trusting that the ways you satisfy us are more than enough and exceed abundantly above all we could ever ask or think.
When you cried I THIRST for physical relief on the cross at Calvary, you were given a bitter concoction that intensified the pangs of your death. Your thirst was dismissed as the cry of a weak man and responded to as one whose death would not free the ones who put you there. And while this happened thousands of years ago, we can only imagine the thirst you continue to feel when your creation refuses to love you in spite of the new mercies you extend every morning.
So, Living Water, on today, we THANK YOU for being the God who quenches our thirsty souls. We THANK YOU for another opportunity to prioritize drinking from your fountain. We THANK YOU for the contentment that comes from satisfying ourselves with you. And we ask that You would quench our thirsts in fresh and creative ways so that we will always feel your presence as the dew in the morning, gently resting upon our thirsty souls.
IN THE NAME OF THE ONE WHOSE FOUNTAIN NEVER RUNS DRY… AMEN.
