The Descent of the Holy Spirit

Here . . .
in this quiet place . . .
as we struggle
with the personal solitude of prayer . . .
Speak Lord . . .
for we are listening.
 
Fill us, Oh Father . . .
with Your Divine Presence . . .
the generous gifts
of the Holy Spirit . . .
for without You
we are empty
and have no worth . . .
 
Bless us with the freedom and grace
to accept You
as You accept us . . .
that we may surrender
all that we are . . .
and all that we may chance to be . . .
to Your Holy Dominion . . .
and to the will of You Son . . .
Our Beloved Jesus . . .
 
Whisper of love . . .
open our hearts to Your Truth . . .
 
Poetry of the soul . . .
let us pray . . .
