Pentecost Prayer

O Holy Spirit, Paraclete and advocate,
we gather in your presence on this Pentecost day,
to honor your eternal flame
that fills us with courage, zeal and love.

As tongues of fire rested on the head of the disciples,
we ask that you grant us the clarity,
to speak the truth of Your word without fear
surmounting the barriers of language, culture or creed.

Breathe into your people that gift of understanding,
that we may hear our brothers and sisters;
the cries of the oppressed, migrants, victims of war and conflict,
And teach us to work tirelessly for justice and peace.

Inflame our hearts with the fire of passion,
To speak peace to a broken world;
To spread your gospel of peace and reconciliation,
To build communities of harmony.

O Holy Spirit, Paraclete and advocate,
Renew us with your Pentecost,
That we may fearlessly leave the rooms of our hiding,
And go out to the ends of the earth in your name. Amen!
