The Pentecost

Yesterday was the feast of the Pentecost. My church's bulletin published a prayer for this day. I'd like to share the prayer with you:

Prayer of Thanksgiving for Our Gifts

Holy Spirit of God,
who rushed upon women and men
in the early days of the Church,
continue to breathe over us now.

Make us compassionate,
hospitable, merciful, caring, and just.
Help us preach your word,
teach your truth, and lead others
lovingly to you.

Thank you for your gifts.
Make us bold in using them,
that the whole community of faith
might grow into him who is the head,
Jesus Christ. Amen.

Happy Pentecost.
