3rd Sunday of Lent, Year A
19 March 2017
God, are you with us?
We seek assurance.
Like the Israelites at Massah
we desire proof.
Like the people of Meribah
we ache for assurance beyond words,
Something we can see and touch.
Forgive our testiness and fickle faith.
Renew our commitment to hold fast.
Strengthen our belief in your mysterious presence.
Shoot our veins full of the experience of blessing.
Shatter the stoniness of our resistance.
Break forth as water from a rock
Filling our minds to overflowing with your being.
