A Prayer to the Most Holy Trinity

When the Bishop of Bridgetown was appointed Archbishop of Port of Spain there was a desire to give him a gift of prayer.  That desire inspired this prayer and song...Most Holy Trinity.  That was back in 2017...it has taken us this long to be able to record and release the prayer publicly.  We hope that it will be part of your prayer on Trinity Sunday. 

Prayer to the Most Holy Trinity
Father, into Your hands, I commend my spirit, I surrender my heart,
I relinquish my will
And Father, I abandon myself, I come, to be sculpted,
let Your will be done in me
Father, I entrust you with my doubts, I cast all my cares,
You are my refuge and strength

Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
Praise, glory and honour, our hope, our salvation, blessed Trinity

Jesus, Your body fills my hungry soul, Your blood quenches my inner thirst
You’ve lived to die for all my sins
Jesus, have mercy on my transgressions, accept my tears of repentance
Renew my strength to bear my cross
And Jesus, Lamb of God, You are my Shepherd, with You no evil do I fear
Blest be the power of Your name

Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit
Praise and glory and honour, our hope, our salvation, blessed Trinity

Holy Spirit, I invite your presence here, I welcome all your gifts
I pledge to use them all in service
Holy Spirit, bring me wisdom and enlight’nment, anoint my lips to speak Your word
Open my eyes to seek Your truth
And Holy Spirit, dwell in me, Kindle Your flame in my heart, fill me with love and compassion
Breathe new life in me

Amen

Prayer to the Holy Spirit by St Augustine set to music

One of the members of Color music ministry has composed music for the Prayer to the Holy Spirit.  The recording is a peaceful and meditative version of this prayer in song. 

Prayer to the Holy Spirit

Breathe in me O Holy Spirit, that my thoughts may all be holy.
Act in me O Holy Spirit, that my work, too, may be holy.
Draw my heart O Holy Spirit, that I love but what is holy.
Strengthen me O Holy Spirit, to defend all that is holy.
Guard me, then, O Holy Spirit, that I always may be holy.
Amen

Prayer to Jesus (St John Vianney's prayer set to music)

Some years ago someone asked if I could set St John Vianney's Prayer to Jesus to music.  I had never seen this prayer before but once I did it resonated immediately.  What an absolutely beautiful love song to Jesus!  Color Music Minstry recorded and recently released the song online via our Contemplative Worship Podcast, SoundCloud and YouTube and it will soon be available for streaming on all major platforms.

St John Vianney’s Prayer to Jesus
"I love You, O my God, My only desire
is to love You until the last breath of my life.
I love You, O my infinitely lovable God,
and I would rather die loving You,
than live without loving You.

I love You, Lord
and the only grace
I ask is to love You eternally.
My God, if my tongue can't say
in every moment that I love You,
I want my heart to repeat it
to You as often as I draw breath."
