Lent 3: March 24-30

Call to worship

Leader: Come and worship. O God, you are our God and we thirst
for you.

All: We will praise you and bless you as long as we live.

Leader: Satisfy our deep needs with joy in you, God. As we light this
third candle of Lent, we call you and thank you for satisfying us with
your love. Amen.

Pondering thoughts

I wonder what it is like to be thirsty in a land without water.

I wonder how praising God blesses us as well as God.

I wonder how God will satisfy our deep needs today.
