Prayer for Pentecost
And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and said to them, "Receive the Holy Spirit ..." John 20:22
In the Season of Pentecost we remember that God gives the Holy Spirit to renew the church, to be our teacher, to bring healing, and to help us in our life of prayer.
So I come to you again today Lord, humbly, waiting to be filled, wanting the best for my family and for the world.
Send your Spirit of peace to all parts of our world caught in conflict and war - we remember Afghanistan, Iraq, Myanmar, Israel and Palestine.
Send your Spirit of healing into the lives of my family and friends going through tough and challenging times with their health, their employment, their education or their relationships.
And send your Spirit to fill me to full and overflowing - to bring personal peace, healing, reconciliation with those I'm not getting on with, and a new direction for my life at this time.
Thank you for the gift of your Spirit. Thank you for the gift of your Son, Jesus.
Help me in all I do this day to do it in such a way that the patience, and love, and caring of Jesus might be seen through me, and so bring peace and healing to others.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
