Come Holy Spirit ~ Prayer for Pentecost

Posted in Church Calendar, Contemporary Prayers, Seasons tagged , at 4:00 am by davebayne

Come Holy Spirit,
enter our silences.
Come Holy Spirit,
into the depths of our longings.
Come Holy Spirit,
our friend and our lover.
Come Holy Spirit,
unmask our pretending.
Come Holy Spirit,
expose our lives.
Come Holy Spirit,
sustain our weakness.
Come Holy Spirit,
redeem our creation.

Enter our trusting,
enter our fearing,
enter our letting go,
enter our holding back.

Flood our barren spaces,
make fertile our deserts within.
Break us and heal us,
liberator of our desires.

Come Holy Spirit,
embrace and free us.
