Prayer for the Coming of the Spirit – Come Spirit of the Lord
Come, Spirit of the Lord, upon me.
For I have lost the riches of my faith
And in my poverty, I hunger to hear good news.
For I am captive to my pain and sadness
And from this prison, I long for release.
For I have shut my eyes to the despair of the world
And in my blindness, yearn to recover your vision.
For I am oppressed by obligations and skewed priorities
And my soul aches for freedom.
I ask for courage to stand and proclaim the Lord’s favor pouring out abundant life. Justice and peace, truth and mercy fulfilled in all creation as promised in scripture.
