Prayer of Confession
(inspired by John 4: 4-42)

God of living water, we confess the dryness of our lives:
the brittle words we have thought and spoken . . .
the relationships that are crumbling . . .
the arid perspective that centers on self . . .
the cracked and jagged edges of our world . . .
Hear our confession, O Christ,
and rain down your mercy upon us.

[Silence]

Assurance of Pardon

Jesus says,
“Those who drink of the water that I will give them will never be thirsty.
The water that I will give will become in them a spring of living water.”
