Post-Ascension Prayer

Here’s a post-Ascension prayer from Julie on RevGalBlogPals.

Post-Ascension Prayer
(inspired by the events in Acts 1:6-11)

Where did you go Jesus?
Where did you go?
We stand, necks craning back, looking heavenwards
But we cannot see you
Where did you go?
Did you leave us?

Hush my child,
Listen, listen,
Listen for the breeze
Listen for the breath
Listen for the Holy Wind's whispered promise

You are not alone
You are not alone
You are never alone

My love is yours
My strength is yours
My wisdom... all yours for the taking
Listen, listen, listen....

It comes, a gentle breeze, caressing your spirit
It comes, building, energising, filling the spaces
Until you are full

O Holy Spirit!
Come!

Breath of God
Spirit of God
Our wise counsellor
Our constant companion
Helps us to remember that you are always with us
In persecutions, and turmoil, and dread
In excitements, and joy and love
In the mundane and everyday
You are. Here.

O God
Our God
We praise you
We call on you
We rely on you
As we stand and stare
As we wait again,
for the reminder that Pentecost only needed to happen once
as you promised,
for now the Spirit is always with us

Creator, Brother, Breath
Amen and amen
