I Thirst!

The cry from the cross echoes down through the ages,

‘I thirst!’

It is an empathetic cry for

it is a genuine cry.

‘I thirst.’

He felt need.



‘I thirst!’

I feel discomfort.

I feel dehydrated.

Worn out.

I need something more than I have.

I, too, thirst.

‘I thirst!’

Oh, sharing Father,

help me catch hold of that echo.

Its love,

its genuineness,

and, in doing so, realise that 

I’m not misunderstood.

Jesus was.

So I would always be known.

‘I thirst!’

The strength of every echo is

its source.

Reminding me I’m recognised.


By you.

‘I thirst!’

Help me listen to your echo.

All it means,

all it stands for.

Enable me to let it resound into my life and days.

May I never let your echo fade.

‘I thirst!’


Lord Jesus

Thank you that I can never say ‘no one understands’,

because it’s not true.

Even when it feels true,

it’s not.

You are right here.

I’m known.
