Prayer to the Holy Spirit.

O Holy Spirit, give me stillness of soul in you.        

Calm the turmoil within, with the gentleness of your peace.

Quiet the anxiety within, with a deep trust in you.


Heal the wounds of sin within, with the joy of your forgiveness.

Strengthen the faith within, with the awareness of your presence.

Confirm the hope within, with the knowledge of your strength.


Speak, Lord, your servant is listening. Amen.



Prayer for every person I know.

With the first light of sun, God bless you. 

When the long day is done, God bless you.                                 

In your smiles and your tears, God bless you.

Through each day of your years, God bless you.

May God bless every person I meet.

May He give all of us the grace to bring

welcome, kindness and friendship to them.    

May we all be united one day in his love and peace.
