Prayer for the woman at the well

Site Logo

Jesus had to go through Samaria. He came to a Samaritan city called Sychar, which was near the land Jacob had given to his son Joseph. Jesus was tired from his journey, so he sat down at the well. It was about noon. A Samaritan woman came to the well to draw water.

Prayer Tip: The Woman at the Well

Site Logo

What makes this world so lovely is that somewhere it hides a well. I think it comes at a perfect time as after a few weeks of our Lenten journey, we are certainly in need of a well! She is a Samaritan, a race of people the Jews utterly despise as having no claim on their God…and she is also an outcast, one who is looked down upon by her own people.

She comes alone in the heat of the day to draw water from the community well. This is unusual as drawing water and chatting at the well early in the day is the social highpoint for most other women. She is ostracized and marked as immoral, an unmarried woman living openly with the sixth in a series of men. Can we place ourselves at the well and watch the interaction between Jesus and the woman?

He throws out a line to the woman with a lure on it! Perhaps he stayed by the well to do just that. He asks her for a drink. His gaze is upon this woman and he is provocative and challenging. He casts the line a second time telling her that the water he gives will turn into a spring inside her — now he is really dangling that brightly coloured lure before her. She seems to hear this time and wants this water that means she will never get thirsty again, never have to come to the well again, never have to be embarrassed again by having to come secretly in the middle of the day.

But, Jesus wants to lure her even more so he casts again. I will lure her into the wilderness where I can speak to her heart. I will betroth her with integrity and justice, with tenderness and love. I will love the Unloved and say to No People of Mine that you are my people.

When Jesus confronts her with her life of sin and tells her that he is the Messiah, the woman suddenly forgets her reason for being at the well; she leaves her water jug behind and hurries back to tell the people to Come and see a man who has told me everything I ever did; I wonder if he is the Christ? Jesus has lured her into his love, forgiveness and mercy and in doing so, frees her to leave her old life behind. His loving gaze surrounds her and washes over her — she is now wanted, cared for at last, no longer an outcast, not shamed or put down or dismissed, here was someone who could see something of value in her.

This is grace… this is the living water, the loving gaze that Jesus pours upon her and upon all of us. As I said, we all know this story well but the Church gives it to us every year at this time in Lent so that we can plumb its depths a little more… for, like a good well, it will always provide much more of that life-giving stuff! And, like the love and mercy of our God, its ability to refresh and renew us is limitless.

So, I suggest to all of us over the coming days leading up to this weekend, to search for a well, an oasis in our Lenten journey. And in whatever form you choose to pray, put yourself in the same position as the Samaritan woman… approach the well as you are, with all your gifts, characteristics, problems, worries, failings… and meet Jesus there.

Strike up a conversation… maybe you will start, maybe he will… take it slow, meet his gaze and hold it if you can, feel his eyes upon you, listen a lot…perhaps to words, or perhaps to his gaze or maybe just sit in silence with him… whatever happens in your encounter, dip your bucket deep in the well of that life-giving water offered so freely to us, the waters of cleansing, love, grace, mercy and refreshment.

And, we only have to look around at the effects of all this water to see just what refreshment it can bring. May each of us find one this coming week and drink deeply with delight! The words I have been quoting from Macrina are but a taste of her beautiful reflection. Something lovely there is about a well so deep un-piped and real filled with buckets and buckets of that life-giving drink. A faucet will do in a hurry, but what makes the world so lovely is that somewhere it hides a well!

Sometimes people are like wells deep and real natural un-piped life-giving, calm and cool, refreshing. They bring out what is best in you They are like fountains of pure joy They make you want to sing or maybe, dance. They encourage you to laugh even, when things get rough. Some experiences are like wells too. People create them They are life-giving happenings They are redeeming experiences They are wells, Wells of wonder, Wells of hope.

When you find a well and, you will some day, Drink deeply of the gift within. So, lift up your eyes and look around you: Over the mountains, down in the valley out in the ocean, over the runways into the cities, into the country sidewalks and highways paths in the forest into the hearts of a thirsty people.

Parish Prayers as Jesus meets the woman at the well (John 4.5-42)

This entry is part 19 of 23 in the series 30 Days of Prayer. Historical scholars tell us that the hour this woman chooses to go to the well alone to draw water about noon is odd. They speculate that she wants to avoid being seen by other people who normally go in the cool mornings or late afternoons to draw water, because of the shame of her reputation. She wants to hide in broad daylight.

Please check the reference to make sure it is correct. The Samaritan Woman.

This Sunday, the Third Sunday of Lent, we will hear in the Gospel the story of the encounter and conversation of Jesus and the Samaritan woman at the well. I invite you to think about the thirst of Jesus and the thirst of the woman in the Gospel, representing also our thirst, the thirst of our souls. On the surface, Jesus was naturally thirsty. Jesus asks the woman for a drink of water.

30 Days of Prayer: Day 19 – Woman at the Well

In an article first published in The Irish Catholic, Brendan Comerford finds lenten inspiration in the Gospel story of the Samaritan woman at the well outside Sychar. I can never resist the temptation to do so since the Gospel reading for The Third Sunday of Lent, Year A, is the marvellous story of Jesus meeting the Samaritan woman at the well John If someone were to ask you what is your image of Jesus, what would you say? When I think about that question in times of prayer, I invariably come back to this scene of Jesus with this woman. I find something very human about a Jesus who is literally exhausted from walking and most likely ministering to the crowds. This is a Jesus who is dusty, perspiring, hungry and thirsty, maybe in need of some personal space from his disciples. This is our God! How close the Christian God is to our own very human experience! This is curious in itself.

Woman at the Well – Pastoral Prayer

Bibles are being translated into different languages, missionaries are going to the least reached and people are finding hope in Christ. Yet, despite all these efforts, there are still many people who have never heard the gospel or the name of Jesus. Although Russia is predominately a Christian country, many ethnic groups live in a desperate need of the gospel. The Tatar people are an ancient nomadic Turkic people group who live mostly in Russia.

I will give you as a light to the nations, that my salvation may reach to the end of the earth. Isaiah b. Morning has broken like the first morning, blackbird has spoken like the first bird. Praise for the singing! Praise for the morning!

Mar 5, - This last Wednesday we walked through the woman at the well story from John 4. If you have a prayer routine, consider using this for yours.

This Samaritan woman goes to the well in the heat of the day most likely because she wanted to avoid running into others who would look on her as a tainted woman. She is surprised to encounter a man, and even more a Jewish man, who initiates a conversation with her. She was already vulnerable because of her past and when she meets this man, Jesus, she could immediately recognize his acceptance.

From a talk given at St.

Халохот сделал стремительный прыжок. Вот. На ступенях прямо перед Халохотом сверкнул какой-то металлический предмет. Он вылетел из-за поворота на уровне лодыжек подобно рапире фехтовальщика.

Но Чатрукьян стоял на. - Зараженный файл существует, сэр. Но он прошел Сквозь строй. - Если эта система его не перехватила, то откуда вы знаете, что вирус существует. Чатрукьян вдруг обрел прежнюю уверенность. - Цепная мутация, сэр.

Это было впечатляющее зрелище. Длинные ниспадающие рыжие волосы, идеальная иберийская кожа, темно-карие глаза, высокий ровный лоб. На девушке был такой же, как на немце, белый махровый халат с поясом, свободно лежащим на ее широких бедрах, распахнутый ворот открывал загорелую ложбинку между грудями.
