Holy Spirit, Lover of our souls:
You have set us in this world
Each with intention, destiny, and purpose,
And given us opportunities to know you
To connect with you,
And to become our best selves.
You have given us freedom of choice on this journey.
In love you have allowed us to choose
Whether we will listen and pay attention to you;
Whether we will love you.
We choose you, our Friend and Redeemer.
Make our lives a testament to your love.
We don’t want to settle for surface level
Or for a spirituality that never changes us.
Help us to be patient with the process of growth,
To even enjoy it;
To be present with the journey of life, spirit, soul
To dig deep and uncover whatever is hidden
And bring it to light (Matthew 10:26).
To encounter our inner darkness without fear
To look for beauty, and do its work;
We set our intentions toward life and light.
We know that we are our best selves
When we most aware of your grace towards us.
Walk with us on this journey of life
Now and forever.
