Prayer for Pentecost

Loving Father God,

Thank you for sending your Holy Spirit.

Your Spirit who knows no restrictions or barriers.

Your Spirit who can reach us and be with us and in us, wherever we are, whatever our circumstances.

Your Spirit who comforts and heals and empowers us to live with confidence that, ultimately, all shall be well.

Your Spirit who connects us, through the life, death, resurrection and ascension of Jesus.

Because of Jesus’ victory over death,

we have hope and life forever.

Thank you, loving Father, Son and Holy Spirit. 

Amen.
