Pentecost Prayer: To Be Filled

Here’s a prayer of petition based on Acts 4.  It was written by Michael Perry, and posted on the Jubilate website.

(inspired by Acts 4)

We thank you, Sovereign Lord,
creator of sky, earth and sea and everything in them,
that you spoke by your prophets:
stretch out your hand now to heal,
perform among us miraculous signs and wonders:
fill us with your Holy Spirit
that we too may speak boldly for you;
through the name of your holy servant, Jesus. Amen.
