This Week’s Prayer
On this day you opened the way of eternal life to every race and nation by the promised gift of your Holy Spirit:
Shed abroad this gift throughout the world by the preaching of the Gospel, that it may reach to the ends of the earth;
through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
Yesterday was Pentecost Sunday, the day we celebrate the gift of the Holy Spirit.
I'm grateful for the presence of the Spirit in my life, aren't you? God's Spirit lives and breathes in us; guiding, comforting, filling, and strengthening us.
The Holy Spirit brings life and power - especially in those moments when we feel discouraged and overwhelmed.
The Spirit convicts us of evil and guides us into the light of truth.
He heals our fractured relationships, and binds our hearts together.
Let's pray that this gift is poured out on the whole earth, in abundance. Oh, how we need the balm of unity and love that only He can give.
And I will pray for you, my dear reader. I will pray that the Holy Spirit will fill your life to overflowing, and that you will experience His presence and a new and tangible way.
May He renew your strength and give you joy.
