Long ago, while Israel wandered in the desert, the people grumbled, saying to Moses, “give us water!”.

God had freed them from Egypt, given them manna and quail, and yet, they whined for water!

Long ago, while Israel wandered in the desert, the Lord told Moses, there would be water from a rock.

The Lord gave water, and the people drank their fill! Now we come for the water of life.

HYMN “Guide Me, O Great Jehovah” #127 UMH


Almighty God,

we confess that we are often swept up in the tide of our generation.

We have failed in our calling to be your holy people,

a people set apart for your divine purpose.

We live more in apathy born of fatalism that in passion born of hope.

We are moved more by the private ambition than by social justice.

We dream more of privilege and benefits than of service and sacrifice.

We try to speak in your name without relinquishing our glories,

Without nourishing our souls, without relying wholly on your grace.

Help us to make room in our hearts and lives for you.

Forgive us, revive us, and reshape us in your image. Amen.

Almighty God,

We thank you for all you have given us even to this day.

We thank you for food and air, and the water that makes up our bodies.

We have come to be filled by your Spirit, to encounter the fullness of life.

Like the Israelites, at times we grumble and fail to trust that you will give us all we need.

But the Lord is faithful, generation after generation, keeping promises to care for us,

a people called to worship and witness to the unchanging faithfulness of God.

Now, in gratitude we bring ourselves and our gifts,

in praise and thanksgiving for the unfailing love we have received.

Receive these gifts, and receive us as worthy of your service, we pray,

through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,

one God, in glory everlasting. Amen.


Together let us pray for

The people of this congregation…

Lord in your Mercy, Hear our Prayer.

Those who suffer and those in trouble…

Lord in your Mercy, Hear our Prayer.

The concerns of this local community…

Lord in your Mercy, Hear our Prayer.

The world, its people, and its leaders…

Lord in your Mercy, Hear our Prayer.

The church universal-its leaders, its members, and its mission…

Lord in your Mercy, Hear our Prayer.

The Communion of Saints…

Lord in your Mercy, Hear our Prayer.

We offer these prayers through Jesus Christ our Lord…
