Monthly Prayer

 

 

Rushing in like a violent wind

stirring and unsettling us

throwing our certainties into disarray:

Come, Holy Spirit!

 

Flowing through our hearts like rivers of living water,

like streams in the desert,

renewing, refreshing,

giving life to new possibilities:

Come, Holy Spirit!

 

Dancing like tongues of flame,

setting our hearts on fire

to love the way you do;

extravagantly, joyfully, indiscriminately:

Come, Holy Spirit!

 

Calling like the wild goose

whose harsh cries surprises,

causes us to lift our faces heavenward,

to strain our eyes for a glimpse of your presence:

Come, Holy Spirit!

 

Come to pour out your grace

Come to transform our hearts

Come to awaken our love

Come to show us the way

 

Come, Holy Spirit:

meet us here.
