Prayer to the Holy Spirit

       Oh great Spirit of God, descend upon us. Descend upon our nation. Descend upon me personally. Let me this very day feel your presence, your peace, and let me see examples of Your illumination. Please, oh Spirit, reveal things to me. Set me on the proper course. Grant me true heavenly eyesight. Let me see the world as You see it. Let me see myself as You see me. And let me view happenings with discernment and goodness and calm. As I look at the happenings in the world, including those that would cause upset, let me rather feel great grace and instead of consternation a spirit of prayer. Heal us, oh Lord, and deliver our world.
