Pastoral Prayer: Pentecost

Here’s a pastoral prayer for Pentecost from J.M. Drescher.

Pastoral Prayer (Pentecost)

For the gift of Your Spirit
we praise You, our God.

We have come to You
by the Spirit’s conviction.
We have new life
through the Spirit’s indwelling.
We are made Your children
by the Spirit’s adoption.
We witness and serve
by the Spirit’s empowerment.
And we yearn to be more like Christ
because of the Spirit’s urgings.

Continue, we pray,
Your gracious work,
so that we may walk in this world
free from the bondage of sin,
and free to do Your will
in the glorious liberty of Your children
through Your Holy Spirit.
Amen.

— written by J.M. Drescher, in Prayers for All Seasons
