Come, Holy Spirit, and Show Us What is True

PRAYER : Come, Holy Spirit, and Show Us What is True

Come, Holy Spirit, and show us what is true.
In a world of great wealth
where many go hungry
and fortunes are won and lost
by trading in money,
come, Holy Spirit, and show us what is true.

In a world of great knowledge
where many die in ignorance
and every piece of information
has a price in the market-place,
come, Holy Spirit, and show us what is true.

In a world of easy communication,
where words leap between continents
and we expect to see a picture
to illustrate each item of the news
come, Holy Spirit, and show us what is true.

In a Church which speaks a thousand accents,
divided over doctrine, creed and ministry,
more anxious for itself than for the Gospel,
come, Holy Spirit, and show us what is true.

In a Church touched by the flame of Pentecost,
moved to generous sacrifice and costly love,
interpreting the will of God with new insight
come, Holy Spirit, and show us what is true.
