Come, Holy Spirit

Open your mouth wide, and I will fill it, Psalm 81: 10

Come, Holy Spirit,

Help me to replace the busyness of my life with a simpler lifestyle, so I will focus on “the deeper things” in life and allow time for others.

Nourish my yearning to understand and to appreciate myself; keep me from being too self-oriented and unmindful of other’s needs.

Help me to have the courage to empty myself of everything that does not contribute to the transformation of this world.

Fill me with trust in your consoling presence. Calm me when I am anxious and troubled about many things.

Continue, to create a deep hunger for you within me,
Feed me with ” the finest wheat” of your joy, peace, and love.

Come, Holy Spirit
