Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks
the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” © NIV 1984
I have been keen to do another piece which could be used as a blessing for a Baptism,
Confirmation or Ordination. This passage in John holds a powerful message of hope for a
world which thirsts for that elusive ‘something’. Whether that ‘something’ is spiritual meaning,
true love, happiness, security or day to day needs, God, in the man Jesus, promised that if we
allow the Spirit of God into our lives then not only will our needs be met one way or another
(since our idea of how to improve matters may not be Gods ways), but we will live forever with
Him. I think that’s exciting!
Northumbria Community in Their Evening Prayer Liturgy use the following prayer, ‘Expressions of faith’
(translated for the British Council of Churches Week of Prayer for Christian Unity 1988).
Lord, You have always given bread for the coming day; and though I am poor, today I believe.
Lord, You have always given strength for the coming day; and though I am weak, today I believe.
Lord, You have always given peace for the coming day; and though of anxious heart, today I believe.
Lord, You have always kept me safe in trials; and now, tried as I am, today I believe.
Lord, You have always marked the road for the coming day; and though it may be hidden, today I believe.
Lord, You have always lightened this darkness of mine; and though the night is here, today I believe.
Lord, You have always spoken when time was ripe; and though you be silent now, today I believe.
