Reveal yourself to us, Holy Spirit.

Bring us pause, invite us to ponder, draw us in.

For we know that we do not see,

We do not hear, we cannot understand

The beauty of God’s reign

And design for our lives

Except when it is revealed through the Spirit.

So if we are to imagine a world of peace,

Free of oppression and grief, we must

Start by praying “Holy Spirit, Come!”

Breathe into our midst — in us, with us,

And through us — and lead us

Into the ways of everlasting.

This is our fervent prayer.
