Join us (and Christians throughout the world) all this week
in prayerful preparation for the Feast of the Holy Spirit
aka Pentecost – Sunday 15 May 2016
In the Name of the +Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen
Be with us, Spirit of God:
nothing can separate us from your love.
Breathe on us, Breath of God:
fill us with your saving power.
Speak in us, Wisdom of God:
bring strength, healing, and peace.
Blessed are you, Sovereign God and Eternal Father.
Daily your Spirit renews the face of the earth,
bringing strength out of weakness,
hope out of despair and life out of death.
By the power of your Spirit,
may your blessing rest upon us.
Let us know your acceptance and adoption, your equipping and empowering.
Form us in the likeness of Christ,
that we may witness to your astonishing love,
and fill us afresh with life in all its fullness.
Blessed be God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit:
Blessed be God for ever.
Veni, Sancte Spiritus – Come, Holy Spirit
