Holy Spirit breath

Holy Spirit, I call out to You today

Praying Your Spirit breath would fall upon the weary

That You would lift up all those who feel dreary

Help us in our fear

To Your Spirit draw near

Calm us when people rub us the wrong way

That You would guard the things we say

Help us to see the beauty of our Father’s blue sky

The joy in people as they pass by

The humour in the chipmunk with his full cheeks

The searching that lies in the heart who seeks

Our cry for a heart that is pure

The strength for life’s trials to endure

The laughter in the games of a child

The life that is in all animals that are wild

The healing sounds of a waterfall

The knowledge that to You our spirit can call

The faith that is with us in our human unbelief

The refreshment that is our soul’s relief

The hope of a brighter tomorrow

The comfort You give in times of sorrow

The peace that You give to those who ask

Your strength for every task

Your love that surrounds us in our time of need

Thank you that You do our hungry souls feed

For Your Son who died for all our sin

That Your Holy Spirit breath would dwell within



About Dr. Kevin Osborne B.A., B.Th., M.A., M.Div., Psy.D., D.Sc., D.D.

I enjoy spending time with people just having a coffee or talking about life, philosophy, religion, politics or sharing a favorite joke or story. We learn from one another as we interact and share our joys, challenges and even our times of sadness. I enjoy reading, writing, singing and sharing in the blessing of community whether that is one on one or in groups. I'm married and am powned by two kitties named Sir William of Lounge a.k.a. Sir Lounge a Lot and Princess Catherine of Chaos a.k.a. Her Royal Highness Catherine of Englehart. Two years ago I completed my Doctorate in Psychology (Psy.D.) through St. James the Elder University. On Sept. 26th 2020, I graduated with a Master of Divinity degree from Canadian Christian Theological Seminary. These journeys were started over 20 years ago. In 1997 I received a Bachelor of Theology degree from Canada Christian College & Graduate School. Between working and studying it took 13 years to finish it. Let us pray for and reach out to each other with kindness, love and an embracing compassion. We can working together be servants with two open hands to those in need so that hate, indifference and inequality would lose and love will win. The peace and abounding joy of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.
