Pentecost Prayer: Breath of God

Here’s a prayer of commitment for Pentecost Sunday from Catherine Gorman/ CAFOD.

Pentecost Prayer
(inspired by Acts 2)
Breath of God,
Spirit who appeared like a driving wind,
blow away our prejudice
and teach us to value all people.

Spirit of God,
who appeared like tongues of flame,
burn in us as a passion for justice
and a commitment to change.

Spirit of life,
who caused the disciples to speak in tongues,
speak through us,
and fill us with the courage to proclaim your love.

Spirit of truth,
who fills us with wonder and awe,
inspire us to work for a better world
and a future where injustice is swept away.
Amen
