Holy Spirit, Come: A Poem and Prayer

I wrote this poem/prayer as a way to call on the might power of the Holy Spirit. As a way to bring that power into my life to help me heal and let go and move on. Feel free to use this yourself if you think it would be helpful to you.


Holy Spirit, Come


Holy Spirit, come to me

Light on me like a dove, stay on my shoulder and guide me

Holy Spirit, come to me

Like the flames of holy passion

Burn down every remnant of trauma, of shame, guilt, pain, grief, rage, hatred, sin, and death

Burn away anything that keeps me from fully surrendering to God

Holy Spirit, come to me

Like the waters of baptism

Wash me clean in your deluge

Flood me with your wisdom and peace, your energy and courage

Come, Holy Spirit

In your light, let me be light

Fill me with your light of healing and hope

Until I’m nothing but love

And have nothing but the wish to serve


But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.

John 14:26
