PRAYER OF INTERCESSION FOR PENTECOST

Prayer of Intercession for the Feast of Pentecost

O living God, come and make our souls temples of thy Spirit.  
Sanctify us, O Lord! 
Baptize thy whole Church with fire, that the divisions soon may cease, and that it may stand before the world as a pillar and buttress of thy truth.  
Sanctify us, O Lord! 
Grant us all the fruits of thy Holy Spirit: brotherly love, joy, peace, patience, goodwill and faithfulness.  
Sanctify us, O Lord! 
May the Holy Spirit speak by the voice of thy servants, here and everywhere, as they preach thy word.  
Sanctify us, O Lord! 
Send thy Holy Spirit, the comforter, to all who face adversity, or who are the victims of men’s wickedness.  
Sanctify us, O Lord! 
Preserve all nations and their leaders from hatred and war, and build up a true community among nations, through the power of thy Spirit.  
Sanctify us, O Lord! 
Holy Spirit, Lord and source of life, giver of the seven gifts,  
Sanctify us, O Comforter. 
Spirit of wisdom and understanding, Spirit of counsel and strength,  
Sanctify us, O Comforter. 
Spirit of knowledge and devotion, Spirit of obedience to the Lord.  
Sanctify us, O Comforter.

(Prayer of Taize Community)
