Everlasting light

 

Holy Spirit,
Fill us,

Dwell in us, 
And help us;

Guide us to Christ’s truth, 
His way, his life.

Holy Spirit,
Comfort us,

Counsel us;
Encourage us;

Lead us to God’s 
Everlasting light.

So tired

The Spirit… intercedes for us with sighs too deep for words (Romans 8:26; NRSV).


Lord,
People are suffering all around me,
But I’m so tired and burdened
That I can’t even pray.

So, may your Holy Spirit
Intercede for them on my behalf,
With sighs too deep for words,

While I wait patiently on you,
In stillness,
And in silence.

Through the power
Of your Holy Spirit,
Who dwells within me.
