To the Paraclete, a Prayer


O Holy Spirit,
giver of light and life,
impart to us 
thoughts better than our own thoughts,
and prayers better than our own prayers,
and powers better than our own powers,
that we may spend and be spent
in the ways of love and goodness,
after the perfect image
of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. 

Eric Milner-White and G W  Briggs
Daily Prayer 1941
