O Holy Spirit of Wisdom!
Help us to see beyond what is,
to a vision of your kindom.

Inspire us, revive us,
that we might let go
of trying to fix what is,
to edit,
as if our
structures and institutions
are templates for a slightly better future
if only we fix them up a bit.

Instead, O God,
teach us to walk in your ways,
teach us wisdom
teach us to heed the prophets
of this and every age
and fire our imagination
for your kindom’s sake.

Then, O God,
fire our wills,
strengthen our communities,
that we might be ready,
be able,
to do the work of realising
what we imagine,
that we might pray
in word and deed,
Your Kindom Come.
Amen
