Prayer to the holy spirit from the words of a famous hymn

Breathe on me, Breath of God

Breathe on me, Breath of God
fill me with life anew,
that I may love what thou dost love,
and do what thou wouldst do.

Breathe on me, Breath of God,
until my heart is pure;
until with thee I will one will,
to do and to endure.

Breathe on me, Breath of God,
till I am wholly thine;
until this earthly part of me
glows with thy fire divine.

Breathe on me, Breath of God:
so shall I never die,
but live with thee the perfect life
of thine eternity.

Hymn prayer to the Holy Spirit

Breathe through the heats of our desire
Thy coolness and Thy balm;
Let sense be dumb, let flesh retire;
Speak through the earthquake, wind, and fire,
O still, small Voice of calm.

John G. Whittier, 1872
A verse fro
m the hymn, "Dear Lord and Father of Mankind"

Taize Latin chants serve as powerful prayer to the Holy Spirit

There are many Taize chants which serve as powerful prayers to the Holy Spirit.

When sung in Latin the chant feels especially sacred and powerful to me. Maybe it's the Catholic in me :-)

The repetition and the simplicity of the chant invite in the Holy Spirit, and take you beyond the words to rest in God.

Veni Sancte Spiritus
tui amoris ignem ascende
Veni Sancte Spiritus
Veni Sancte Spiritus

Jesus said, "I give you a new commandment.
Love one another just as I have loved you"
Jesus said "It is by your love for one another
That everyone will recognise you as my disciples"
Jesus said "No one has greater love than this
To lay down one's life for one's friends"

We know love by this
That Christ laid down His life for us.

English translation:
Come Holy Spirit,
kindle in us the fire of Thy love

This hymn helped to keep me going through the hard years of severe disablement.

It is such a powerful prayer to the Holy Spirit.
An invitation to take the hard times and let God's love use me in the midst of them to bring through a knowledge of the greater reality of love, beauty and purpose in all things.

Gratitude to its author. May they rest in peace.

All over the World, the Spirit is moving.
All over the World , as the prophet said it would be.
All over the World there’s a mighty revelation
Of the Glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea.

"A shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse;

from his roots a Branch will bear fruit.

The Spirit of the Lord will rest on him -

the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding,

the Spirit of counsel and of might,

the Spirit of the knowledge and fear of the Lord -

and he will delight in the fear of the Lord."
(Isaiah 11:1-3, Old Testament Bible quote about the Holy Spirit)

Powerful prayer to the Holy Spirit based on Old Testament Bible quote

Spirit of the Lord, rest on me.

Spirit, fill me with your wisdom and understanding,

Spirit, fill me with your counsel and might,

Spirit, give me knowledge of and respect for God.

The fashions and seasons of this world come and go. I am blessed to have the stability of looking to You to be the primary authority in my life.

I delight that You are my guidance, and my reference point.


"The Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered." (Romans 8:26. KJV)

Dear Holy Spirit,
You give words to my prayer. Thank you.

Jesus and the Holy Spirit

“Now there was a man in Jerusalem called Simeon, who was righteous and devout.
He was waiting for the consolation of Israel, and the Holy Spirit was on him.
It had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not die before he had seen the Lord’s Messiah.
Moved by the Spirit, he went into the temple courts.
When the parents brought in the child Jesus to do for him what the custom of the Law required, Simeon took him in his arms and praised God, saying:

“Sovereign Lord, as you have promised,
you may now dismiss your servant in peace.
For my eyes have seen your salvation,
which you have prepared in the sight of all nations:
a light for revelation to the Gentiles,
and the glory of your people Israel.”

(Luke 2: 25-32, NIV)

Just as you told Simeon to go to the temple,
guide me to the state of mind in which I meet with Jesus today. AMEN

Powerful prayer to the Holy Spirit as the bringer of truth

“I [Jesus] have much more to say to you,
more than you can now bear.

But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes,
he will guide you into all the truth.

He will not speak on his own;
he will speak only what he hears,
and he will tell you what is yet to come.

He will glorify me
because it is from me that he will receive what he will make known to you.

All that belongs to the Father is mine.
That is why I said the Spirit will receive from me
what he will make known to you.”

(John 16:13:12-15, NIV)

Dear Jesus,
send the Holy Spirit to tell me the truth for which I am ready.

For myself and all here. AMEN

Again he [Jesus] said, “Peace be with you.
As the Father has sent me, so I am sending you.”
Then he breathed on them and said,
“Receive the Holy Spirit."
(John 20:21-22)

Powerful pentecost prayer to the Holy Spirit

“When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place.
Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting.
They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them.
All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them.”

(Acts 2:3, NIV)

Holy Spirit,

We sit in circle with each other
and we are of one mind– the mind to receive you.

Your tongues of fire rest on us
and cleanse us
and give us voice to speak of you.


“Then Peter began to speak: “I now realize how true it is that God does not show favoritism but accepts from every nation the one who fears him and does what is right.
You know the message God sent to the people of Israel, announcing the good news of peace through Jesus Christ, who is Lord of all.
You know what has happened throughout the province of Judea, beginning in Galilee after the baptism that John preached— how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and power,
and how he went around doing good
and healing all who were under the power of the devil, because God was with him.…

While Peter was still speaking these words, the Holy Spirit came on all who heard the message.
The circumcised believers who had come with Peter were astonished that the gift of the Holy Spirit had been poured out even on Gentiles.
For they heard them speaking in other languages and praising God.

Then Peter said, “Surely no one can stand in the way of their being baptized with water.
They have received the Holy Spirit just as we have.” So he ordered that they be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ.”
(Acts 10:34-48, NIV)

God, you do not have favourites.

I choose you as the authority in my life, and I aim to do what is right.

I hear the message.
I receive the good news of peace through the knowledge of the Christ.

The Holy Spirit comes on me.
The gift of the Holy Spirit is poured out on me.

Praise and thanksgiving.


Holy Spirit in the Letters of St Paul

“But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared,
he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy.
He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit,
whom he poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior,
so that, having been justified by his grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life.”
(Titus 3:4-7, NIV)

Prayer to the Holy Spirit based on St Paul's letter

I am saved through the washing of rebirth

and through renewal by you, Holy Spirit.

You Holy Spirit are poured out on me generously through Jesus Christ.

Justified by his grace, I am a joint heir with Jesus

I rest in the eternal present moment


"Do you not know that you are the temple of God
and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?"
(1 Corinthians 3:16, Bible Christ consciousness)
