Precious Jesus, Living Water,
OCW has heard Your call to us. We understand we’re to write our Father’s fame and glory, making His name and faithfulness known to all people. We know that all we accomplish You do for us and apart from You we can do nothing (Isaiah 26:12; John 15:5).*
Help us come to Your river of life and make our home with You beside that living stream. Cause us to thrust our spiritual roots deep into the waters flowing from the sanctuary and the altar. Praise You that the source of the river is our sacrificed Lamb’s torn side. Blood and water pour forth and give life to all who drink from that fountain (Ezekiel 47:1–12).
Thank You for meeting us whenever we come to Your river, Father. You promise to speak Your confidential communion and secret counsel to all who choose righteousness (Proverbs 3:32). We long to know Your secrets. Teach us to abide in You, rest in You, and wait patiently for Your Word to manifest to us. Open our ears to hear. Empower us to write Your living word with authority, ability, weight, and power (Luke 4:32).
Help us drink living water daily so we are enabled and energized to serve You. Thank You, Lord, for the blood, the water, and the Word that transform and sustain us. Get glory for Your great name from all we do. Amen.
