Praise be to you, Oh Lord, for your infinite wisdom, mercy, and grace.
We praise you because our limits are ever more pressing and our strength too often fails.
For we are weak kneed and our hearts bleed for every vile manner of evil.
We yield to the slightest temptation and bow before idols that our minds churn out day after day.
But we thank you for the gift of your Holy Spirit to guide our thoughts and calm our hearts
and give us the strength needed to walk in your ways.
Be now our constant companion, a helper in our daily struggles.
Grant us peace in this turbulent world and peace in our hearts,
that we may grow to reflect your image more closely day by day.
In Jesus’ precious name, Amen.
Prayer for the Holy Spirit
