Prayer to the Holy Spirit

Prayer to the Holy Spirit

Come, Holy Spirit

Replace the tension within us … with a holy relaxation.

Replace the turbulence within us … with a sacred calm.

Replace the anxiety within us … with a quiet confidence.

Replace the fear within us … with a strong faith.

Replace the bitterness within us … with the sweetness of grace.

Replace the darkness within us … with a gentle light.

Replace the coldness within us … with a loving warmth.

Replace the night within us … with your light.

Replace the winter within us … with your spring.

Straighten our crookedness.

Fill our emptiness.

Dull the edge of our humility.

Light the fires of our love.

Quench the flames of our lust.

Let us see ourselves … as you see us.

That we may see you … as you have promised.

And be fortunate … according to your word.

Blessed are the pure of heart,

for they shall see God.
