Come Holy Spirit, Friend of my soul,
Replace the tension within me with a holy relaxation.
Replace the turbulence within me with a gentle calm.
Replace the anxiety within me with a quiet confidence.
Replace the fear within me with a strong faith and deep love
Replace the bitterness within me with your grace,
Replace the darkness within me with a gentle light.
Replace the coldness within me with a loving warmth.
Replace the Winter within me with your Spring.
Straighten my crookedness, fill my emptiness.
Take away my pride, teach me to be humble.
Light the fire of my love, quench the flame of my lust.
Help me to see myself as you see me.
Come Holy Spirit fill the hearts of your faithful.
Kindle in them the fire of your fire.
Send forth your Spirit and you shall renew the face of the earth.
O God, who by the light of the Holy Spirit didst instruct the hearts of the faithful, grant that by the light of the same Holy Spirit we may be truly wise and ever rejoice in his consolation. Through Christ Our Lord.
