Read – Today, Pentecost Sunday, we celebrate the gracious gift of the Holy Spirit, who leads us in understanding and following Jesus today. May we receive the inspiration of the Spirit.
Pray – Come, Holy Spirit, set our hearts on fire! Find the passion you have placed in our lives and let it become the fire of transformation, that refreshes, that refills, that renews, not just for us, O God, but so we might join with others, to live your love, a love that transforms the world. Amen.

Pray – Come Holy Spirit, come blow into our lives. ignite the fire of hope, fan the flames of possibility. Transform us into a people who share your love with a world in pain, a people who proclaim your hope into a world given to despair, a people who live as though the world can be changed into the kiingdom that is to come. Come, Holy Spirit, take and transform our communities so that broken people find healing; that lonely people find love; that bitter people find peace; that fearful people find hope. Come, Holy Spirit, fill our lives with your presence so that more and more every day, all that we do and say and hope will be an act of worship to you and an expression of love to others. Amen.
