May the Holy Spirit enfold us,
lighting our way with respect
for the Earth and all life upon it,
for ourselves and others.
May the Holy Spirit fill our hearts
with compassion for those who are sick,
the lost, the angry, the hungry, the poor,
and help us to bring them sustenance and healing.
May the Holy Spirit inspire us
to be lights in the darkness,
servants of peace, and witnesses
to the miracles of God's grace.
