I'd like to share this prayer by Sr. Rina Cappellazzo, O.P., Vicar for Religious for the diocese of Tucson, Arizona. It seems like an appropriate prayer for me at this moment in my life.
Come Holy Spirit
Replace the tension within me with a holy relaxation
Replace the turbulence within me with a sacred calm
Replace the anxiety within me with a quiet confidence
Replace the fear within me with a strong faith
Replace the bitterness within me with the sweetness of your grace.
Straighten my crookedness
Fill my emptiness
Dull the edge of my pride
Sharpen the edge of my humility
Light the fires of your love within me.
Creator God, from whom every good gift comes, send Your Spirit
Into my life with the power of a mighty wind,
and by the flame of your wisdom,
open the horizons of my mind.
I ask this in the name of Jesus, your Son. Amen
