Create a deeper awareness in me, O Lord,
Over all that is happening in my world.
Recreate in me a new spirit,
Overwhelm me with the power of your Holy Spirit.
Nurture in me a loving heart for the world,
Always open to love, specially the poor and old.
Vividly, call me on my knees to pray,
Integrating all the world’s care.
“Rest in me” as you call the weary,
Unite us in the love and hope you carry.
Satisfy us with your presence, lest we fall under the cross we carry. Amen.
