Readings and Prayers – 23 March 2014


The water that I will give, says the Lord, will become in you a spring of water well-ing up to eternal life. John 4:14


O God, the fountain of life,
to a humanity parched with thirst
you offer the living water the springs from the Rock,
our Saviour Jesus Christ:
stir up within your people the gift of your Spirit,
that we may profess our faith with freshness
and announce with joy the wonder of your love.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever. Amen
