I have come to be sought by You, just as I am I come.

I will wait for the Lord. My soul waits, and in His word do I hope.

Reading: Psalm 119:129-132 (NLT)

Your laws are wonderful. No wonder I obey them! The teaching of your word gives light, so even the simple can understand. I pant with expectation, longing for your commands.

Come and show me your mercy, as you do for all who love your name.

overflowing-well

Reading: Habakkuk 2:14 (NLT)

For as the waters fill the sea, the earth will be filled with an awareness of the glory of the Lord.

Reading: John 7:37-39 (NLT)

On the last day, the climax of the festival, Jesus stood and shouted to the crowds, “Anyone who is thirsty may come to me! Anyone who believes in me may come and drink! For the Scriptures declare, ‘Rivers of living water will flow from his heart.’” (When he said “living water,” he was speaking of the Spirit, who would be given to everyone believing in him. But the Spirit had not yet been given, because Jesus had not yet entered into his glory.)

Prayer – 22 October, Celtic Daily Prayer (Aidan Readings)

O Lord, Your word enters and lets in the light. It gives understanding to the simple.

Open-mouthed and longing I come to You. To whom else shall I go? You have the words of eternal life. I have believed, sometimes recklessly, sometimes hesitantly, but I have believed, and come to know that You are the only one who can satisfy my thirst.

I am an emptiness for Thee to fill;
my soul a cavern for Thy sea.

George MacDonald
