O Wise Spirit,
Advocate and Guide,
Sweet Holy Life,

Gather us up and carry us away,
Show us and teach us.
And remind us again.
Hold us and help us.
Lift the troubles and all our weariness.
Give us a moment with you,
Just you,
And leave us with your Peace.
Know us and embrace us,
Remind us again-
You are here.
You are with us.
We are not alone.

O Dear Spirit and Wild-Free Friend,
Carry me away.
Show me your Kindom.
Teach me everything.
Help me to understand.
Help me to believe.
Help me to know.

Amen.
