Breathe on me, Breath of God,
fill me with life anew,
that I may love the way you love,
and do what you would do. -Edwin Hatch
Pneuma (Spirit), may your breath….
Revive me when my complacency keeps me from moving out of my comfort zone to make your life giving presence known
Resuscitate me when I feel trapped in the sinking sand of adversity that feels suffocating
Reconcile me to those whom I have hurt either directly or inadvertantly by not seeing them as my neighbor
Restore your creation through me as you open my eyes to the ways we sustain one another

Lord, I know I’ve disappointed
You, and caused You pain;
please, can I be re-anointed?
Breathe on me again!
So many things I should have done,
I didn’t, that’s a fact,
and I sinned ’cause it was fun;
’twas self-control I lacked.
I hurt so many others
to build my ego up,
while know them as brothers;
that guilt’s a bitter cup,
so I ask rebirth from this soul-death
by Your sweet and holy breath.
“so I ask rebirth from this soul-death
by Your sweet and holy breath.” Thankfully the CPR never stops.

Amen! The reasons we need to be still–so God can breathe on us and in us.
