Your Holy Spirit

That your holy spirit
would fill us all, that we would all
feel the power of the moment,
when we were washed,
claimed by your spirit
that we would be like the eleven,
all in the upper room
washed by tongues of fire,
gifted with powers
to communicate, to inspire
to touch the lives of others,
sharing your good news
Fill us Spirit, teach us,
guide us to where we must go
fill us with that breath of life,
reborn, indwelling,
being merely the vessel,
the worthy temple
being the skin
within which the spirit lives
to continue the saving
brought by the son
the sacrifice of the father,
creator of all
