I wrote this prayer at the beginning of the week and have used it as part of my daily meditation ever since. The imagery of God’s living and cleansing water flowing over us is very powerful in the Bible. Water is a precious gift that renews, refreshes and restores us.
I was reminded of that this morning as I read about Nestle’s water privatization push and about the drought in California. I think of it too as I remember those who do not have access to clean water and pray for those like our friends at the Overflow Project who help dig wells and provide fresh water.
Water is a gift in so many ways. As you pray this prayer today I hope that you will remember that.
