Opening Prayer

Water of Life, You overflow into the desert landscape of my soul. You are an eternal river which overflows its banks and gently waters our thirsty spirits. Your temple is a fountain of life, from which we drink. Your flooding presence lifts burdens. Touch again the pool and create gentle waves which heal all aridity and disability within and among us. Give our souls a Lenten Sabbath to deeply drink, wade and swim in the refreshing and overflowing waters of Your love and mercy. We blossom and grow because You are living water.
