Lord Jesus, as you met with the woman at the well many years ago, so meet with us at this place, in this time here today. Speak into our lives and cause us to hear your word of truth that brings us true life.
Break through our doubts, our fears, and our resistance to you and transform our lives that we might worship you in Spirit and in truth. Amen.
*This prayer was used in worship to prepare for a message on this passage from John entitled, “What is Worship?” The message shared from the conversation with Jesus and the Samaritan Woman that real worship: Begins with God (4:7-8), reveals the life the God offers us through Jesus Christ (4:10-15), reveals the truth about us (4:16-18), demands a response from us (4:19-26 – often our fear, avoidance or denial), and finally, real worship leads to a changed life that points others to Jesus (4:27-30, 39-42).
