We remember the woman at the well –
her questions, her truth, her witness.
Pour out your Holy Spirit upon us, so like her
we may ask candidly,
reveal ourselves deeply, and
share your Good News freely.
Pour out your Holy Spirit upon us,
so we may worship you in spirit and truth.
Prayer of Confession
Jesus, we thirst
We thirst for love and belonging
We thirst for security and provision
We thirst for truth and hope
We thirst for healing for our wounds
We thirst for mercy for our sin, our guilt, our shame
Time of silent confession
Assurance of Pardon
Jesus, you pour yourself out for us and the world
so we may be born again of water and the Spirit,
so we may never thirst again
We thank you and praise you for your eternal blessing and forgiveness.
Help us lead others to the well of your saving love.
John 4:5-42 is read on the 3rd Sunday of Lent, Year A
