Pentecost - Honiton Deanery

advertisement
Behold, I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh;
your sons and daughters shall prophesy,
your old men shall dream dreams,
and your young men shall see visions.
Even upon your servants,
in those days, I will pour out my Spirit.
Joel 2:28-29
Lord, touch my lips:
that I may sing your praise with all my heart.
Spirit of flame, purify me:
Spirit of freedom, empower me.
Glory to God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit:
mystery of love, behind, through
and beyond all things.
I will worship the Lord:
all praise to his name.
As I turn my face to you, O God,
let my worship be once more a new beginning:
cleanse my spirit in your mercy,
draw me ever deeper into your love,
and accept my offering of praise and prayer
on behalf of the world;
through Jesus Christ,
our Lord, Saviour, King and Friend.
Amen.

Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord from the heavens:
praise him in the heights!
Praise him, all his angels:
praise him, all his host.
Praise him, sun and moon:
praise him, all you shining stars.
Praise him, you highest heavens:
and you waters above the heavens!
1 of 4
Let them praise the name of the Lord:
for he commanded and they were created.
He established them for ever and ever:
he set a law that cannot pass away.
Praise the Lord from the earth:
you sea monsters and all deeps;
Fire and hail, snow and frost:
stormy wind fulfilling his command.
2 of 4
Mountains and all hills:
fruit trees and all cedars.
Wild beasts and all cattle:
creeping things and birds that fly.
Kings of the earth and all peoples:
princes and all rulers of the world.
Young men and maidens:
old men and children.
3 of 4
Let them praise the name of the Lord:
for his name alone is exalted,
and his glory is above earth and heaven.

Creator Spirit,
in the beginning
you moved over the face of the waters,
and in the fullness of time
you filled the apostles with joy.
All praise to you, with the Father and the Son,
one God, now and for ever.
Amen.

On the first day of the week, Jesus came and
stood among them saying, ‘Peace be with you.
As the Father has sent me, so I send you.’ When
he had said this, he breathed on them and said
to them, ‘Receive the Holy Spirit.’
John 20:21-22
Holy Spirit, fire of love,
consume all that is rotten in me
and change me from the inside.
Holy Spirit, Comforter,
melt all that is cold and hard in me,
and soothe my hurts in your warmth.
Holy Spirit, transforming power,
light up my heart and take possession of me,
so that I may become flame.
Breathe in me, Holy Spirit,
that I may think what is holy.
Move me, Holy Spirit,
that I may do what is holy.
Attract me, Holy Spirit,
that I may love what is holy.
Strength me, Holy Spirit,
that I may guard what is holy.
Guard me, Holy Spirit,
that I may keep what is holy.
Breathe on me, Spirit of Jesus,
and help me to be aware of your
calm presence throughout my life.
Amen.

When the day of Pentecost had come, they
were all together in one place. And suddenly
from heaven there came a sound like the rush
of a violent wind, and it filled the entire house
where they were sitting. Divided tongues, as of
fire, appeared among them, and a tongue
rested on each of them. All of them were filled
with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other
languages, as the Spirit gave them ability.
Acts 2:1-4
The Holy Spirit is like the rising water of the tide,
ready to fill every cranny that opens in the reef it
engulfs, yet forcing no openings that are not offered.
In this way the Spirit of Christ shapes our spirits.
When we seek the company of Jesus through prayer
and sacrament, and when we put ourselves into the
acts and concerns of Jesus, our attitudes become the
attitudes of Jesus. These attitudes are the
immediate form of the divine life in us. When we
allow the love of God to move in us, we can no
longer distinguish between our attitudes and his.
This is the firstfruit of the Holy Spirit.
Faithful God,
my light, my strength and my salvation:
guide me along the way,
help me to trust you in times of trouble,
and fill me with your Spirit of peace,
now and all my days.
Amen.

Whenever we pray as Christians, we do not pray
alone. We pray both through Christ and with Christ
and in Christ, and Jesus prays for us and with us and
in us, so that, through the work of the Holy Spirit,
our prayer becomes Christ’s prayer.
When the body of Jesus prays, it does not separate
its head from itself; so let us therefore recognise
both our words in him and his words in us.
Andrei Rublev, 1425
Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name.
Your kingdom come, your will be done on earth
as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread
and forgive us our sins as we forgive those who
sin against us. Lead us not into temptation but
deliver us from evil. For the kingdom, the
power and the glory are yours, now and for
ever. Amen.
Father of light, from whom every good gift comes,
send your Spirit into our lives with the power of a
mighty wind; and by the flame of your wisdom open
up the horizons of our minds. Loosen our tongues
to sing your praise in words beyond the power of
speech, for without your Spirit we could never raise
our voices in words of peace or announce the truth
that Jesus is Lord, who lives and reigns with you
and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
Amen.

Almighty and all-loving God,
through the fire of your Spirit
you have drawn the hearts of men and women
to share in the mystery of your being;
by the power of the same Spirit
infuse our lives with your presence,
that, as your Son was transfigured in prayer,
we too may be transformed,
and our lives become
a flame of self-giving love.
Amen.
I will bless the Lord, Trinity of love:
now and for ever unto ages of ages. Amen.
May you leave this place refreshed and full
of God’s peace.
If you would like prayer, for
yourself or a friend, please make
your way up into the chancel.
Please stay for refreshments!
