O God, you renew us by your living water.
Grant us fresh strength to meet the challenges of this day in your name.
The desert and parched land will exult; the steppe will rejoice and bloom. They will bloom with abundant flowers, and rejoice with joyful song.
Streams will burst forth in the desert, and rivers in the steppe. The burning sands will become pools, and the thirsty ground, springs of water.
Flow River Flow

Flow river flow, flow over me. O living water poured out for free; O living water, flow over me.
Let us pray...
Creator God, your works are mighty and great. As you led your people of old, help us to continue our journey from dry and parched lands to your fountain of life-giving water. Lead us in the work of this day. Amen.
