A Prayer for Pentecost

Breathe in me, O, Holy Spirit
that my thoughts may all be holy;

Act in me, O, Holy Spirit
that my works, too, may be holy;

Draw my heart, O, Holy Spirit
that I love but what is holy;

Strengthen me, O, Holy Spirit
to defend that which is holy;

Guard me then, O, Holy Spirit
that I always may be holy.
[Augustine of Hippo]

  1. Kristen, Augustine is one of my go to guys when it comes to hitting the nail on the head succinctly and with sound doctrine. Thanks for sharing this with us today.


    P.S. New guest post at Leslie Keeney’s “The Ruthless Monk.” It’s about a wayward dentist and the gospel truth: http://www.theruthlessmonk.com/too-good-to-be-true/ I’d love to hear your thoughts on it!
