Join churches across Australia, as together we pray for our thirsty world…
Waterworks Sunday Prayer
Heavenly Father, Fountain of Living Water,
You watered your perfect creation before the Fall, and will water the New Creation with the river of life flowing from the throne and the Lamb. We praise you for your generous provision and merciful gift of water to sustain life, support communities and bring growth.
Lord God, the majority of the world experiences desperate water struggles. Millions do not have water that is sufficient when needed, safe to drink and easy to access. Likewise, so much of the world is spiritually parched, without the thirst-quenching power of Jesus, your Living Water.
Deserving nothing but judgement, yet we plead for your mercy in this matter, as we rejoice in your grace for the salvation we have received through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Please turn hearts to yourself in repentance and faith and so allow us to drink deeply of your grace.
Please inspire in all of us generosity and compassion to relieve the hardship and suffering of communities dependent on water to satisfy their thirst, now and into eternity.
Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
