A Prayer for Pentecost

By: Fr. Austin Fleming

A Prayer for Pentecost by Fr. Austin Fleming

Come, Holy Spirit,

and fill my heart again
with the fire and power of your gifts.

Come, Holy Spirit,
and with wisdom help me know what’s real,
to see through God’s own eyes.

Come, Holy Spirit,
and with understanding light my way
to follow all that faith reveals.

Come, Holy Spirit,
and be my beacon of right judgment,
with counsel prudent, just, and sure.

Come, Holy Spirit,
and kindle in my soul the courage
to do what’s right, what’s true and pure.

Come, Holy Spirit,
and give me knowledge of God’s plans
for my life, my gifts and talents.

Come, Holy Spirit,
and bend my mind and heart
to reverence God above all others.

Come, Holy Spirit,
and in awe and wonder stoke my heart’s desire
to do always what God asks of me and nothing less.

Come, Holy Spirit,
fill my mind and heart with your light and gifts
and my soul with your breath of peace.

Come, Holy Spirit,
and draw me to the Father’s love
through Christ, my Lord and Savior. Amen.
