God of life,
help us to remember that, for some, the earth is parched.
We lift to you those for whom clean water is not a basic right but a luxury,
We cry out, O God, against conflict and violence
that leaves crops to wither and drives families from their homes
to lands where fresh, clean water is only a dream.
In this season of rebirth,
may we heed your call to hunger and thirst for righteousness —
and may your justice and righteousness roll down
as an ever-flowing stream.
