Prayer for a new Pentecost
“Holy Spirit, Lord and Giver of life,
You who came down upon the apostles,
In a mighty wind and with fire,
Who filled the house where they were
And gave them the gift of tongues
To proclaim the wonders of God,
Come down now upon me also.
Fill me with yourself;
Make of me a temple wherein you dwell.
Open my lips to proclaim your praise,
To ask your guidance,
To declare your love.
Holy Light, Divine Fire, Eternal Might,
Enlighten my mind to know you,
Inflame my heart to love you,
Strengthen my will, to seek & find you.
Be for me the living
And life-giving Breath of God,
The very air I breath, and
The only sky in which my spirit soars.”
In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen.
