Sunday Prayer

God of Wind and Fire, on this Pentecost Sunday, I am more aware than ever of my deep need for you. It's true -- I do not know how to pray. I do not know how to form on my lips the words to express the prayer that lingers on my heart. Thank you for the gift of the Holy Spirit -- comforter, teacher, inspiration, and translator of every soul's deepest needs.

Guide and bless all of us today God. Free us from whatever safeguards we have placed around us to keep our lives and worship predictable. Free us to encounter you in a new way, that your Spirit might truly dance in our midst and inspire us to love and service in Christ's name.

God, bless us as we enter into the Spirit-filled celebration of this day.



  1. The kids and I were baptised today! I talk about it over at the 'Dunk.

    Thanks for your prayer. It is beautiful.

  2. From the Lutheran Book of Worship, hymn #441:

    "Eternal Spirit of the living Christ,
    I know not how to ask or what to say.
    I only know my need, as deep as life,
    And only you can teach me how to pray.

    Come pray in me the prayer I need this day."

  3. My 'Ordinary Time' book has just arrived (Monday morning) - very exciting. I know this has nothing to do with the post I'm adding to the comments of, but I just wanted to say anyway :)!
    Have a good week all.
