Come, Holy Spirit!

Come, Holy Spirit
Replace the tension within us
with a holy relaxation.
Replace the turbulence within us with a sacred calm.
Replace the anxiety within us
with a quiet confidence.
Replace the fear within us
with a strong faith.
Replace the bitterness within us
with the sweetness of grace.
Replace the coldness within us
with a loving warmth.
Replace the night within us
with your light.
Straighten our crookedness.
Fill our emptiness.
Dull the edge of our humility.
Light the fires of our love.
Quench the flames of our lust.
Let us see ourselves
as you see us
That we may see You
as You have promised,
and be fortunate
according to Your word;
"Blessed are the pure of heart,
for they shall see God" (Mt. 5:8)
This is one of my favorite prayers, it calms me and gives me peace in times of worry or anxiety.
I will be going to Fargo tomorrow to see the First Holy Communion and Confirmation of my friend's son. We will not get home until very late Saturday night/Sunday morning. I wish all you wonderful mothers out there a very happy Mother's day!!! Happy Pentecost to you all! May our Lord pour His graces upon you and fill each and every one of you with the Holy Spirit!
