Prayer: The Woman at the Well

Here’s a prayer from Rachel Hackenberg, inspired by Jesus’ encounter with the woman at the well (John 4: 5-42).

(inspired by John 4: 5-42)

See these secrets, and these pains, that I’ve been holding all these years, Holy Stranger; let me lay them out before you so that I don’t have to carry them alone anymore. Let me lay them out before me to examine them again. And when our conversation is done, we’ll toss my secrets into the well and go our separate ways, with my thanks to you for listening, for telling the truth, and for reminding me that I am so much more than my secrets. So much more than my pain and sorrow. Thank you, Holy Stranger, for the encouragement and blessing to be.
