A prayer for Pentecost

Prayer used with the Pentecost Sunday sermon, 08 June 2014 (see here)

  Spirit of the living God,
  Fall afresh on us.
  Fill our hearts to overflowing
  and our fill lives with your joy and delight.

May our excitement and celebration
Move those around us to ask,
‘What’s happening? Are they drunk?’

  Spirit of the living God,
  Fall afresh on us.
  Fill our hearts to overflowing
  and fill our lives with your love and compassion.

May our patience and kindness become our identity,
So that those around us declare in wonder,
‘See how they love one another.’

  Spirit of the living God,
  Fall afresh on us.
  Fill our hearts to overflowing
  and fill our lives with your healing and forgiveness.

May your Kingdom be established in our praises.
So that those around us may call out to the Lord and be saved.

Amen
