Ron Roth's Come Holy Spirit Prayer

Come, Holy Spirit, you replace the anxiety and fear within me with the calm serenity, quiet confidence and courageous faith that comes from knowing there is a rock upon which I am able to lean during the storm, a rock that will not falter or crumble, a rock that is sturdy, strong, and always there waiting with arms outstretched in love.

Come, Holy Spirit, you replace the scars of bitterness and resentment within me with the ointment of joy and gladness which comes from knowing the Forgiver and Healer who wraps me in His tender care.

Come, Holy Spirit, you replace the coldness and hardness of my heart, the dullness of my mind, the darkness of my spirit with the soft, warm golden rays of your never-ending Light. You penetrate down deep into my very being, uncovering all that is hidden and you enliven within me once again the dying ember of a great love for God, for others and for myself.

Holy Spirit, thank you for letting me see myself as you see me, a wonderful being made in Your image, vibrant and alive with abilities and potential for doing great things for You and Your people.Holy Spirit, thank you for this tremendous, powerful truth that You are with me, in me, and for me all the days of my life, healing me and filling me full of your Presence, Love, Peace, and Joy. Amen
