Holy Spirit & Pentecost, Preaching & Reflecting

Holy Spirit In The Murky Corners

Holy Spirit,

Pour into those murky corners

where we hide shabby things, dark memories, and unsavoury desires

which we do not wish to see, yet withhold from your grace.


Bring into your light

the buried grudge, the venom in us, the bitterness we nurse,

those secret fears which sap our energy,

and the pessimism which is an insult to your joy.


Loving Lord Jesus,

we yield these dark things up to your light,

that you may cleanse us with your death,

and transform us with your life

for a deeper understanding of others and a deeper love for you.
