Prayer to the Holy Spirit

Spirit of wisdom and understanding,
enlighten our minds to perceive the mysteries 
of the universe in relation to eternity. 

Spirit of right judgment and courage, 
guide us and make us firm in our baptismal decision 
to follow Jesus' way of love. 

Spirit of knowledge and reverence, 
help us to see the lasting value of justice 
and mercy in our everyday dealings with one another. 

May we respect life 
as we work to solve problems of family and nation, 
economy and ecology. 

Spirit of God, 
spark our faith, 
hope and love into new action each day. 

Fill our lives with wonder and awe 
in your presence which penetrates all creation.
