Prayer of the Spirit

Elder Sophrony(Sakharov) of Essex

O Holy Spirit, All-powerful God;

Gracious Comforter and Almighty Defender;

Giver of Wisdom, and Light of Revelation;

Who by Thy descent didst bring

the uttermost parts of the world

to the only true knowledge of God:

Do Thou come down even upon us,

who grieve Thee always,

to enlighten and sanctify us,

to heal and comfort us

with Thine abiding comfort.
