“Tube wells are a common source of potable water in Bangladesh’s rural villages. Some private individuals own wells, while others can go to a public one. Bengali former Muslims who choose to follow Christ are effectively prevented from getting water from any tube well.
‘In our area, most public tube wells have arsenic, so the government sealed them,’ explained Ali [Siddiki]. ‘Tube wells that are free of arsenic are always crowded. But I am not allowed to get water, because I am a Christian.'”
Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” –John 4:13 & 14
Living Water, You are the source of all life. You created the waters and the land and made them separate. You came to earth as a human to refresh and to cleanse Your people. You are not a broken cistern, but a living spring of water, and You offer those springs to us to carry internally. I pray that You would continue to work through the various organizations that serve Your suffering children in Bangladesh. I pray that You would bless the projects in place to provide clean water to the Christians being denied this neccessity. You own the cattle on a thousand hills; now O rich and plentiful Lord, provide for those who are called by Your name and fill them to overflowing so that they may pour out on others with compassion and kindness. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
