Prayer in Time of Drought



The dust chokes me,

stifles my breath.


In the lethargy of heat

I’ve grown weary:

Vigilance receding

like water from the creek’s edge.

Alertness fading

like porch cushions exposed to sun.


Father, forgive me.


O Son who thirsted

on the cross

that I might drink Living Water,


refill the empty wells of my heart.


Lead me to times of refreshment

in the Spirit’s presence,

to the sparkling, still waters

where Your words are

clear and healing.

O God who supplies in all seasons,

I look to You who

restores my soul,

who makes me

flourish in the wilderness.

Cover me with Your promises,

and with Your love,

and I will bloom amongst Your

goodness and mercy
