How to Stop Being a Thirsty Girl like the Samaritan Woman at the Well

How to Stop Being a Thirsty Girl like the Samaritan Woman at the Well

The Urban Dictionary defines a thirsty girl as a lady who desperately craves the attention of a man. It further clarifies that the term thirsty means the need to gain fame through social media like Instagram.

Though the Bible is more than 2000 years old, it shows us a great example of a thirsty girl. 

This was the Samaritan woman at the Sychar well who was asked by Jesus to bring her husband and she told Him that she did not have one. Jesus then said to her, “You have had 5 husbands and the man you have now is not your husband”. (John 4:17-18)

Thus we can see that even though she lived centuries ago, she was truly a thirsty girl even by our 21st century standards for she craved the attention of men so much that she had lived with 5 of them and was now on her 6th “come-we-stay marriage”.


Thirsty Girls Drink Recipes
Jesus gave this thirsty woman the solution for her craving when he told her, “Whoever drinks of the water that I give will never thirst.” (John 4:14)

This living water that Jesus prescribed for her was Himself because He says, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink.” (John 7:37)

Therefore if you would like to stop being a thirsty girl, drink the living water that Jesus prescribed for this thirsty woman and you will never thirst again for attention from men and strangers on social media. 

To drink this water that Jesus prescribed, do the following:

Come to Jesus
Come to Jesus because for He says, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me.” (John 7:37) 

To come to Jesus, you have to say with your mouth that “Jesus is Lord” and believe in your heart that when He died for our sins God raised Him from the dead and you will be saved. (Romans 10:9)

After accepting Jesus as your Lord and Savior, you now have to live as He expects you to by doing what the Bible says. 

Living to please only Jesus will remove the need for constant validation from persons on social media. The peace from God that you will get as a result of doing His will negate the need to drop your neckline and reveal your cleavage or raise your hem and expose your thighs so that you can get more LIKES on Instagram and Facebook.


Bible Lessons from the Samaritan Woman at the Well

As you come to Jesus, learn from this Samaritan woman at the well and understand that you have to be truthful to Him. Do not lie to Jesus in your prayers in an attempt to sanitize your life. Tell Him the truth because He already knows it and also so by admitting your flaws, you can begin healing. 


Drink the Word
After coming to Jesus, you now have to drink His living water because He says, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink.” (John 7:37)

To drink His water, you have to meditate on Bible verses because Jesus is the Word of God for the Bible tells us that In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God. (John 1:1) The Bible also states that The Word became flesh and dwelt among us and we beheld His glory. (John 1:14)

Therefore create time every day to meditate on Scriptures so that you can drink in the Word of God. 

Doing this is doubly beneficial because the person who meditates on the Word of God Shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water. (Psalm 1:3) This tree that is growing beside a river never thirsts because of its constant access to water and consequently it brings forth its fruit in its season and its leaf shall not wither and whatever they do shall prosper. (Psalm 1:3)

Since most thirsty girls seek attention so that they can raise their self esteem, begin by meditating on Bible verses to boost your self esteem like the following:
I am fearfully and wonderfully made. (Psalm 139:14)
I am precious in God's eyes. (Adapted Isaiah 43:4) 
I am God's masterpiece created in Christ to do good works which God prepared for me. (Ephesians 2:10) 

In addition to drinking these Scriptures into your mind by meditating on them, you also have to drink them into your body by confessing them with your mouth as you believe them with your heart so that you can be secure in who you are in Christ.

Therefore spend a few minutes each day speaking these Scriptures over your life after you have personalized them and preferably when you are standing in front of a mirror. For example, you can say each morning as you prepare to face the day and each evening as you prepare to sleep:
I, (insert your name) am fearfully and wonderfully made. (Psalm 139:14)
I, (insert your name) am precious in God's eyes. (Adapted Isaiah 43:4) 
I, (insert your name) am God's masterpiece created in Christ to do good works which God prepared for me. (Ephesians 2:10) 


Pray
Pray and ask God to heal the broken places inside you so that you can stop being desperate and seeking attention to validate your worth because He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. (Psalm 147:3) Prayers that you can pray for emotional healing include:

Heavenly Father I ask You in the name of Jesus to heal me and I shall be healed because You are the one I praise. (Adapted Jeremiah 17:14)

Heavenly Father I ask You in the name of Jesus to bring health and healing to me. Father God heal me and reveal to me an abundance of peace and truth. (Adapted Jeremiah 33:6)

Heavenly Father I ask You in the name of Jesus to restore me to physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health and heal all my wounds. (Adapted Jeremiah 30:17)


Worship God
When the woman at the well realized that Jesus was not an ordinary man, she said to him, “Sir, I perceive that You are a prophet. Our fathers worshipped on this mountain and you Jews say Jerusalem is the place of worship.” (John 4:19)  

Jesus clarified her dilemma by telling her that the place of worship was not important but rather the state of someone’s heart for He said, “The hour is coming and it is now, when the true worshippers will worship the Father in spirit and truth for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. God is Spirit and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth. (John 4:23-24)

Therefore confess your sins and then spend time every day singing Christian worship songs.


Testify
The Bible tells us that this woman went to the city and told the men to come and see a Man who had told her all that she had ever done and they came to Jesus. (John 4:28-30)

Therefore another lesson that you can learn from this Samaritan Woman at the Well is to begin telling others about Jesus and what He has done for you. This testifying is important because your testimony will enable you to overcome the enemy because it is written that They overcame him by the Blood of the Lamb and by the Word of their testimony. (Revelation 12:11)

Therefore, make it a point to tell people what God has done for you and to plead the Blood of Jesus over your life for protection.

How to Pray Effectively Book Excerpt
How Can I Pray Effectively? Part 4

To pray effectively, you have to do the following:

Praise God

The Bible tells us that At midnight, Paul and Silas were praying and praising God while imprisoned. Suddenly there was an earthquake and the foundations of the prison were shaken. All the doors were opened and all the prisoner’s chains were loosed. (Acts 16:25-26)

If you want to pray effectively, you have to praise God because we can see from Paul’s example that combining praising God with prayer can achieve great results since God is enthroned in the praises of His people. (Psalm 22:3)
We can also see that when King Jehoshaphat was praying after his country was attacked, he begun by praising God for He said, “O Lord God of our Fathers, are You not God in heaven? Do You not rule over all the kingdoms of the earth? In Your hand is there not power and might so that no one can withstand You?” (2 Chronicles 20:6)
By asking these questions in his prayer, Jehoshaphat was praising God for being in control in heaven and in all the kingdoms on the earth. He was also praising God for being so powerful that no one could resist Him including the Ammonites, Moabites and people from Mount Seir who had attacked the Israelites.
King Jehoshaphat also placed the choir that was singing praises to God in front of the Israelite army when they were going to position themselves in the battlefield. As a result of their praises, God caused the enemy armies to fight each other and the Israelites won.
Therefore make it a point to always begin your prayer sessions by singing praise and worship songs because we are to Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise. (Psalm 11:4) Then, continue to praise God as you pray by enthroning Him as God over your situation by declaring that He is still in control of your situation even if it has left your control.
At midnight, Paul and Silas were praying and praising God. (Acts 16:25)

Thank God


The Bible tells us that In every situation combine prayer with supplication and thanksgiving as you make your requests known to God. (Philippians 4:6)

So, if you want to pray effectively, you have to thank God after asking Him for what you need.
Emulate Jesus Who thanked His Heavenly Father when He was praying for Lazarus’ resurrection for He said, “Father I thank you because You have heard me.” (John 11:42) His prayer was answered and Lazarus woke up and walked away from his tomb.
Jesus also thanked God before He miraculously fed 5000 men with 5 barley loaves and 2 fish. (John 6:11) His thanksgiving worked wonders because 12 baskets of leftovers were collected after these men and their families were fed.
Therefore as you pray, thank God for the blessings that He has already given you in the past and for those you are expecting to receive in the future. Thank Him also for listening to your prayers and even when you are waiting for your answers to come, Continue earnestly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving. (Colossians 4:2) 
Do not be anxious about anything. In every situation combine prayer and supplication with thanksgiving as you make your requests known to God. (Philippians 4:6)

Remind God

The Bible tells us that, Remember now O Lord I beg You how I have lived before you in truth and with a perfect heart and how I have done what was right in Your sight. (Isaiah 38:3)
If you want to pray effectively, remind God of the good things you have done.
We can see that when King Hezekiah became sick, God sent his Prophet Isaiah to tell him to set his house in order because he was going to die. Hezekiah then turned to the wall and prayed, “Remember now O Lord I beg You how I have lived before you in truth and with a perfect heart and how I have done what was right in Your sight.” (Isaiah 38:3)
God responded to his prayer by sending Isaiah back to Hezekiah to tell him that He had heard his prayer, seen his tears and added 15 more years to his life. (Isaiah 38:1-5)
We can also see another example of this from the centurion whose servant was sick because when he sent Jewish elders to ask Jesus to come and heal him, they reminded Jesus of the centurion’s good works for they said, “He loves our nation and he has built us a synagogue.” (Luke 7:5)
Therefore, when you are praying, remind God of the good things that you have done not because God needs to be reminded, but because it serves to boost your faith.
For example if you have been helping the less fortunate members of your society, remind God of your acts and what His Word says for it is written, “Blessed is the person who considers the poor because the Lord will deliver them from trouble, preserve them and keep them alive. They will be blessed on earth and God will not deliver them to the will of their enemies. God will strengthen them when they are sick and sustain them on their sickbed.” (Psalm 41:1-3)
In addition to reminding God of the good things you have done, you can also remind Him of the good things He has done for you especially if they are relevant to the problem you are praying for.
We can see this after King Jehoshaphat and the Israelites were attacked because he prayed, “Are You not our God who drove out the inhabitants of this land and gave it to the seed of Abraham your friend forever? And they dwelt here and built You a sanctuary?” (2 Chronicles 20:7-8) By reminding the Israelites that God is the One Who had defeated the people who had been living in their Promised Land, Jehoshaphat was also telling them that God was also able to defeat those who were attacking them.
Therefore, also remind God of what He has done for you in the past with regard to the issue that you are now praying about. Do this not because God has forgotten, but to strengthen your faith in Him.
Remember O Lord how I have lived before you in truth and with a perfect heart and how I have done what was right in your sight. (Isaiah 38:3)

How Can I Pray Effectively Part 3

To pray effectively, you have to do the following:


Pray In The Spirit

The Bible tells us that, Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit. (Ephesians 6:18)

So, if you want to pray effectively, pray in the Spirit.

If you are not filled with the Holy Spirit ask God to fill you with His Spirit because He can do it for Jesus asked, If you being evil know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more shall your Heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those that ask him? (Luke 11:13)
Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit. (Ephesians 6:18)


Pray Persistently

The Bible tells us that, Pray without ceasing. (1 Thessalonians 5:17)

So, if you want to pray effectively, you have to pray continuously.

Heed Jesus when He taught His disciples about prayer by giving them the parable of the man who received a guest at his house but had nothing to feed him. He therefore went to his friend’s house at midnight and asked for 3 loaves of bread. His friend asked him not to disturb him since he could not rise because they were all in bed and he had shut the door. Jesus told His disciples that if this man would not rise to give his friend bread because of their friendship, he would rise because of his friend’s persistence and give him as many loaves as he needed. (Luke 11:5-8)

Therefore, always remember that Men ought to pray and not to lose heart. (Luke 18:1) 

And, decide to be committed to Pray without ceasing (1 Thessalonians 5:17) like the Psalmist who declared, “As for me I will call upon God and the Lord shall save me. Evening and morning and at noon, I will pray and cry and He shall hear my voice.” (Psalm 55:16-17)
Pray without ceasing. (1 Thessalonians 5:17)

Pray Fervently
The Bible tells us that The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. (James 5:16)

So, if you want to pray effectively, you have to pray with zeal.

Therefore pray fervently if you want your prayers to be answered so that they can accomplish a lot.

The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. (James 5:16)

How to Pray Effectively Book Excerpt
How Can I Pray Effectively Part 2

To pray effectively, you have to do the following:


Ask According to God's Will

The Bible tells us, This is the confidence that we have in Him – if we ask anything according  to His will, He hears us and if we know that He hears us whatever we ask, then we know we have received what we have asked Him. (1 John 5:14-15)

So, if you want to pray effectively, you have to ask according to God’s will for you. 

Therefore first pray to know God’s will for your situation so that you can pray more effectively by aligning your prayers to His will.


This is the confidence that we have in Him – if we ask anything according  to His will, He hears us and if we know that He hears us whatever we ask, then we know we have received what we have asked Him. (1 John 5:14-15)

Ask in Jesus' Name
The Bible tells us, If you ask anything in My name, I will do it. (John 14:14)

It also says that God has highly exalted Jesus and given Him the name which is above every name so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, those in heaven, those on earth and those under the earth and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father. (Philippians 2:9-10)

So, if you want to pray effectively, you must ask in Jesus’ name.

You can do this by beginning your prayers with “Father God I ask you in the name of Jesus to ...”
Or you can conclude your prayers by saying “... I ask this in the mighty name of Jesus, Amen.”


If you ask anything in My name I will do it. (John 14:14)


Ask Not Amiss

The Bible tells us, You ask and you do not receive because you ask amiss so that you may use it on your pleasures. (James 4:3)

So, if you want to pray effectively, you must not ask amiss. This means that you have to ensure you are praying with the right motives and not praying from a selfishly motivated heart or with corrupt intentions if you want to get answers to your prayers.

Learn from King Solomon when he prayed for understanding with the noble motive of wanting to be able to judge God’s people wisely for he said, “Give to Your servant an understanding heart to judge Your people so that I may discern between good and evil. For who is able to judge this great people of Yours?” (1 Kings 3:10) 

As a result of his pure motive, God told him, “See, I have given you a wise and understanding heart, so that there has not been anyone like you before you, nor shall any like you arise after you. And I have also given you what you have not asked for: both riches and honor, so that there shall not be anyone like you among the kings all your days.” (1 Kings 3:12-13)

Therefore since  correct the secret motives of your heart before you start to pray so that you do not ask amiss and miss the answers to your prayers.   


You ask and you do not receive because you ask amiss. (James 4:3)


How to Pray Effectively is a Bible study which uses practical examples from the Bible to teach you what you should do to ensure your prayers are answered. This Christian prayer book also answers the following questions: *Who can pray effectively? *How can I pray effectively? *When can I pray effectively? *Where can I pray effectively? *What can I use to pray effectively?
