a prayer from a long ago john

Holy Spirit of God, visit now this soul of mine, 
and tarry within it until the eventide. 

Inspire all my thoughts. 
Pervade all my imaginations. 
Suggest all my decisions. 

Lodge in my soul's most inward citadel, and order all my doings. 
Be with me in silence and in my speech,
 in my haste and in my leisure,
 in company and in solitude,
 in the freshness of the morning and the weariness of the evening.


Give me grace at all times to rejoice in Thy mysterious companionship. 

John Baillie 


love the action words.. inspire, pervade, suggest, lodge...
 hope your having a great Saturday with the Holy Spirit as your guide!
