Prayers to the Holy Spirit

Come Holy Spirit come, fill the hearts of your faithful and enkindle in them the fire of your love. Send forth your spirit and we shall renew the face of the earth. AMEN

O Holy Spirit, soul of my soul I adore you. Enlighten, guide, strengthen and console me. Tell me what I ought to do and command me to do it. I promise to submit to everything that You ask of me and to accept all that You allow to happen to me. Just show me what is Your will. AMEN

I open my eyes, O God, to the glory and sunshine in your creation, and I open my heart to receive the full impact of your love. May your radiant fire burn away all that is rotten within me. Let me breathe in the fresh air of life on which I depend in the miracle of existence. May the winds of your Spirit blow through me and clera away th e cobwebs and the rubbish. I surrender my whole being to the wind and the sun of your love. AMEN

(A.A, page 67, The Book of a Thousand Prayers, compiled by Angela Ashwin).

Almighty and all-loving God, through the fire of your Spirit you have drawn the hearts of your being; by the power of the same spirit infuse our lives with your presence, so that, as your beloved Son was transfigured in prayer, we too may be transformed, and our lives become a flame of self-giving love." AMEN
