Today’s reflection comes from our Mercy Prayer Book:

“ Spirit of God, come and transform us. Stir up in us an ardent desire to do your will and bring about the reign of mercy and justice. Holy Spirit, praying unceasingly within us, give our tongues the words to praise you, our hearts the fervor to love you. Sanctify the work of our lives that all our acts may give glory to God, today and always. Abide with us that we may abide with you. This we ask in faith, Amen”

I don’t know about you but I need God’s spirit to transform me now more than ever. What also struck me in this prayer are the words “Holy Spirit, praying unceasingly within us ..I never thought about the Spirit unceasingly praying within me and unceasingly praying within you.

During these times, let’s let the Spirit guide us.
