Lord Jesus, thank You for the living water You offer me. You said that the living water You offer would become in me a spring leading to eternal life.

Lord, I have seen springs before and have enjoyed swimming in the crystal clear rivers and pools that flow from them. The water is fresh and is constantly replenished.

Thank You for showing me that You want to create a spring like that in my heart, a living spring that never ends. When I drink from the spring of Your love, when I take You into my heart as my Savior and Lord, I will enjoy living with You forever. That is better than any cup of water I could drink. It’s better than any spring-fed pool I could swim in.

Jesus, I am thirsty for You. I want the living water of Your heart that only You can give me. Please fill me with Your living water, with Your Holy Spirit, to overflowing. I want to live forever with You. And I want to show Your love to people everywhere I go.

I pray in Your name, Jesus. Amen
