Preparing for Pentecost

All loving God, 
your Spirit is dwelling deep in the hearts of each of us, 
urging us to work for peace, justice, reconciliation 
and respect for the wonderful world you have given us. 

We ask that you give us the courage 
we need to see your Holy Spirit at work 
within us and among us, 
and lead us into more joyful and courageous ways 
of working together for the coming of your Kingdom.

We ask this through Christ the Lord
