Today, I’d like to share a prayer that has been meaningful to me on my faith journey. This prayer, found in the book, Celtic Benediction by J. Philip Newell, expresses a longing for the Holy Spirit to work in our lives in a new and fresh way. Are you aching for this, too?
In the beginning, O God,
your spirit swept over the chaotic deep like a wild wind
and creation was born.
In the turbulence of my own life
and the unsettled waters of the world today
let there be new birthings of your Spirit.
In the currents of my own heart
and the upheavals of the world today
let there be new birthings of your mighty Spirit.
Celtic Benediction, by J. Philip Newell
