Spirit of God 

We worship you, Holy Spirit of God,
and we may only guess, as best we can,
who you are for us. 

We call you by human names and words
so that we need not be entirely silent.
We open up our hearts to receive you
that we may learn how deeply
and invisibly you are present everywhere. 

You are the air we breathe,
the distance we gaze into,
the space that surrounds us. 

We pray to you, Spirit of God, creator,
complete the work you have begun,
prevent the evil we are capable of doing
and inspire us towards what is good.
