You are welcome to use these in worship or in your own devotions.
Today's PrayerBased on John 6:35, 41-51 (Also referenced John 4:13-14)
You are the bread of life for those who hunger
You are the crystal clear cool and pure eternal water for those who thirst
Your people are hungry
Your people are thirsty
So, You offer Yourself to satisfy their hunger and their thirst
Your body You offer to satisfy their hunger
And Your water you give to quench their thirst
But they do not eat, and they do not drink
No, though they hunger, they grumble
Though they thirst, they doubt
Yet, there You stand, in truth and grace
In pure and perfect love, You remain
Until they become we
And, taught by God; drawn to You by Him
We then come to You
And taste the sweetness of Your bread
And are refreshed by waters of our belief
Jesus, we come to you, and we believe
We, Your people are forever fed
We Your people will no longer thirst
All because of You
Your bread, Your very flesh
Your water, Your eternal well
Given for the life of the world
Oh, precious Lord.
You are the bread of life for those who hunger.
You are the crystal clear cool and pure eternal water for those who thirst.
