A Simple Prayer

A Simple Prayer

  • A simple prayer.
    • Come Holy Spirit.
  • Nothing more need be said or thought.
    • Come Holy Spirit.
  • All is known – past, present, future.
    • Come Holy Spirit.
  • Gentle, quiet guidance
    • Come Holy Spirit.
  • Be still and listen
    • Come Holy Spirit.
  • Be quiet and receive
    • Come Holy Spirit.
  • A simple prayer.
    • Come Holy Spirit.

The simple prayer was inspired by a fine Jesuit priest named Father Bernie Brannon, a gentle soul.   When life was complicated he came into my life with kind words, wise thoughts, and gentle guidance.  “Just try to stay in the middle of the narrow road and you will be fine.”     It was the simple things he gave me that helped the most.    May his soul rest in peace…
