Lent 3A, Liturgy

Quench our thirst (a centering prayer)

O God, we have come to meet you this day.
We carry the weight of our lives, our troubles, and our responsibilities.
Help us to know that you see us and all we carry.
Help us to put it all down long enough to listen.
Help us to set it all aside long enough to hear.
Speak to us in living words.
Quench our thirst with living water.
Hold us all with living love.

Everyone needs clean drinking water. Want to help? Check out Little Miss Flint’s GoFundMe.
You are welcome to use both the prayer and the image, inspired by the gospel lesson for Lent 3A, in worship.
