O God the Holy Spirit, come to us and among us. Come as the wind and cleanse us. Come as the fire and burn. Come as the dew and refresh. Convict and consecrate us to our great good and your greater glory.
Grant, O Lord, to all of us to know what is worth knowing, to love what is worth loving, to praise what is pleasing to you, to esteem what is most precious to you, to spurn what is evil in your eyes.
Grant us true judgment to distinguish all things that differ and, above all, to search out and do what is pleasing to you, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
F. Donald Coggan (1909-2000)
The Archbishop of Canterbury
