A Prayer for Centering in the Holy Spirit

I, the highest and fiery power, have kindled every spark of life, and I emit nothing that is deadly. With my lofty wings I fly above the globe: With wisdom I have rightly put the universe in order. I, the fiery life of divine essence, am aflame beyond the beauty of the meadows, I gleam in the waters, and I burn in the sun, moon and stars. With every breeze, as with invisible life that contains everything, I awake everything to life.   

-Saint Hildegard of Bingen, The Book of Divine Works, Vision One

A Prayer for Centering in the Holy Spirit Written by: The Rev. Kay M Houck

Holy Spirit,

You are power.

You are wisdom. 

You are the energy of the universe. 

Your creative power brings 

wonder, curiosity, delight. 

Awaken me to possibilities 

for the fullness of life.

Weave me into the gorgeous 

tapestry of community. 

Let me turn toward my beloved siblings 

that I might hear their stories, 

and be moved toward 

collective flourishing. 

May the deepest desires 

of my heart

honor your generative power.

May the good I seek 

be not just for me, 

but for the whole creation 

you bless and adore. 

Come, Holy Spirit,

awaken my yearning 

Awaken my passion. 

Awaken my life.
