Breathe into me, Holy Spirit, that my thoughts may all be holy.
Move in me, Holy Spirit, that my work, too, may be holy.
Attract my heart, Holy Spirit, that I may love only what is holy.
Strengthen me, Holy Spirit, that I may defend all that is holy.
Protect me, Holy Spirit, that I may always be holy.
~ St. Augustine
Reading this prayer today, I felt like I needed some mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. Breathe into me, Holy Spirit, and make me holy. Suck out of me every little obstacle that hinders me from being sacred. Fill my lungs with your breath. Fresh air must blow out all my staleness and lifeless desire. Come Holy Spirit, and renew me. I want to love only what you deem is holy. Move in and through me, Breath of Life so that I may always be holy too.
What need of resuscitation do you have?
Do you pray to the Holy Spirit for renewal?
