My lifelong friends, Neil and Bobbie Lewis, always have been very active Christians, and faithful members of their Roman Catholic Church. They sent me this wonderful prayer, and I am so taken by it that I want to share it with you -- Bill Cherry
Come Holy Spirit
Replace the tension within us with a holy relaxation.
Replace the turbulence within us with a sacred calm.
Replace the anxiety within us with a quiet confidence.
Replace the fear with us with a strong faith.
Replace the bitterness within us with the sweetness of grace.
Replace the darkness within us with a gentle light.
Replace the coldness within us with loving warmth.
Replace the night within us with Your light.
Replace the winter within us with Your Spring.
Straighten our crookedness.
Fill our emptiness.
Light the fires of our love.
Quench the flames of our lust.
Dull the edge of our pride.
Sharpen the edge of our humility.
Let us see ourselves as You see us, that we may see You, as You have promised.
Most Holy Spirit, beloved of our soul, we adore Thee.
Enlighten us, strengthen us, guide us, comfort us and console us.
We promise to accept and do all that You desire of us.
Most Holy Spirit, bring Peace to us and the world.
