Come Spirit of God grant us
the power to be gentle,
the strength to be forgiving,
the patience to be understanding,
the endurance to accept the consequences
of holding on to what is right.
Come Spirit of God help us to
put our trust in the power of good
to overcome evil,
the power of love to overcome hatred.
Come Spirit of God enlighten us
with the vision to see and the faith to believe in
a world free from violence,
a new world where fear will no longer lead us to
nor selfishness cause us to bring suffering to others.
Come Spirit of Wisdom and Love,
Source of all good teach us your truth and
guide our actions in your way of peace.
