Holy Spirit, to you belongs the power of a smile, the quickening of a touch, the joy of making love. Without you there would be no union, only separateness. Thank you for your endless burden to bring the life of the Father and Son to expression in us. Forgive me for missing so much of what you are doing. Help me see how I am participating in your work. Help me see where I work against you. Do not be grieved at my blindness and hardness of heart. I give you permission to use me. I rejoice to know that you have and do so today.
