The wonder of Pentecost

Wishing you a blessed Pentecost, and much fruit on all our prayers as Thy Kingdom Come season draws to a close.

Pentecost Prayer

(inspired by Acts 2)

Breath of God,
Spirit who appeared like a driving wind,
blow away our prejudice
and teach us to value all people.

Spirit of God,
who appeared like tongues of flame,
burn in us as a passion for justice
and a commitment to change.

Spirit of life,
who caused the disciples to speak in tongues,
speak through us,
and fill us with the courage to proclaim your love.

Spirit of truth,
who fills us with wonder and awe,
inspire us to work for a better world
and a future where injustice is swept away.

One thought on “The wonder of Pentecost”

  1. Spirit of the Living God…
    Fall afresh on me.
    Break me, melt me, mould me, fill me:
    Spirit of the Living God fall afresh on me.”
    (this refrain has been with me all through my life).

    Bless you, Irene.
