"... you will receive the power when the
Holy Spirit comes upon you ...." Acts 1:8

Hasten


Father,
You promised the Holy Spirit
As our Teacher, Counselor,
As one who stands next to us,
Our Advocate, Paraclete.

So I pray --

Come Holy Spirit
Into my soul-house,
Home the bare frame.

Come Sacred Fire
Flame my hope.

Come Sacred Water
Bathe my soul-sweat.

Come Sacred Feed
Nourish myr infant trust.

Come Sacred Arm
Unyoke my envy.

Come Sacred Finger
Point to Your Path.

Come Sacred Hands
Grip me with Your Might.

Come Sacred Breath
In-life my soul.

Then,

I will find my unfound soul and
Live a Jesus-Graced-Life.

Please Hasten

About the Poet
I am 79 years of age. For the past nine years I have been retired, after forty years, from the field of alcoholism and drug abuse in New York City. I am married and we have two grown sons and two grand-sons. My life changed through a grace-experience in 1967. Writing Christian prayers is a particular interest of mine. This came about by a growing awareness of the spiritual in recovery from addictions. I choose, intellectually and emotionally, to believe the Triune God of the Sared Scriptures as my Healer.
