Prayer For a Meeting With Christ

Loving God,
let me meet you today
as the Samarian woman met you at the well.
Surprise me in the middle of my work day.
Ask me for water, food -- any sort of help.
Talk to me, lead me to a new truth.

Keep me alert so that I can recognize you,
listen, question and drink your living water.
Let me hear your voice today,
that voice with which you speak to me every day,
the one I keep missing.

Press me to make time for silence
so that I won't miss you this time.
Show yourself in the people and events of the day,
and give my heart wisdom,
so that I can act wisely and bring good.
I ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
