Prayer at the well

Welcoming Jesus,
we come to you at the well,
from all walks & seasons of life,
from all circumstances,
and in every mood.

Some of us are eager, curious.
Some of us are defensive and worried.
Some of us are tired or lonely.
But most of all, we are
thankful you’re here.

Please be gracious and kind
as we pour out our stories.
Hear our grief…
Know our joy…
Receive our questions.

We still have not learned to be
satisfied by your abundance.
Pour out life for us yet again
and renew us by your mercy.

When a Samaritan woman came to draw water,
Jesus said to her, “Will you give me a drink?”
