Prayer for the third Sunday of Lent ~
O God, Water of Life,
At times our souls are dry, or even frozen,
like a stream in the wintertime.
We feel stuck and immobilized,
not sure where to turn or
how to move forward.
And so we wait.
Give us patience in our waiting.
Allow us to see its value.
Help us to just rest a while,
and let go of our fears,
let go of control.
In the stillness of our waiting,
help us to notice that
deep down, below the ice,
there is still life and movement.
We wait for the springtime sun,
the warmth that will slowly melt the ice
in our souls, our hearts,
our bodies, our relationships.
Shine your love in our lives, O God.
Bring us back to life,
and allow us to flow freely again.
You are the Source of all that is,
the Love that warms our souls,
the Water that give us life.
We praise you and give you thanks!
