This Sunday we celebrate the birth of the church with the outpouring of the Holy Spirit.
Let us pray:
“Lord, send the gift of your Spirit to fill this place
and myself
and the world.
Touch me with truth
that burns like fire,
with beauty
that moves me like the wind;
and set me free, Lord
free to try new ways of living;
free to forgive myself and others;
free to love and laugh and sing;
free to lay aside my burden of security
free to join your mission of justice and peace;
free to see and listen and wonder again
at the gracious mystery of things and persons;
free to be,
to give,
to receive,
to rejoice as a child of your Spirit.
And Lord,
teach me how to dance,
to turn around
and come down where I want to be,
in the arms and heart of your people
and in you,
that I may praise and enjoy you forever. Amen
(prayer by Ted Loder)
