Divining Water – Ken Powell

Divining Water

By Ken Powell

Sometimes, O God, we do not know
How dehydrated we really are.
Bone-dry, depleted,
Parched of spirit.
Show us how and where
To seek your water, we pray.

Give us the will to want to drink
More deeply and fully of your Spirit.
Thank you for the well
Of your living water
Which never runs dry.
In Christ, our Lord. Amen.
