CWCO 2009: Prayer to the Holy Spirit

candlethlHoly Spirit, font of light,

focus of God’s glory bright

Shed on us a shining ray…

 

Father of the fatherless,

Giver of gifts limitless,

come and touch our hearts today…

 

Source of strength and sure relief,

Comforter in time of grief,

enter in and be our guest.

 

On our journey, grant us aid –

freshening breeze and cooling shade,

in our labors, inward rest…

 

Enter each aspiring heart,

occupy its inmost part

with your dazzling purity…

 

All that gives to us our worth,

all that benefits the earth

you bring to maturity…

 

With your soft, refreshing rains

break our draughts, remove our stains,

bind up all our injuries…

 

Shake with rushing wind our will,

melt with fire our icy chill,

bring to light our perjuries….

 

As your promise we believe,

make us ready to receive

gifts from your unbounded store…

 

Grant enabling energy,

courage in adversity,

joys that last forevermore.

 

In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen!
