Come, Holy Spirit,
To the places, the problems, the troubles in our world where we good church folk refuse to look,
To the places, the problems, the troubles in our neighborhoods we insist on ignoring,
To the places, the problems, the troubles in our churches we promise to deal with later,
To the places, the problems, the troubles in our relationships we avoid, neglect and hide,
To the places, the problems, the troubles in our hearts we let fester and suffer in silence,
Come, Holy Spirit,
Fill those places, those problems, those troubles with your sweet breath,
Fill those places, those problems, those troubles with your work and wisdom,
Fill those places, those problems, those troubles with your healing and hope.
Come, Holy Spirit, come…
