A Prayer for Pentecost
This prayer can also be sung as a hymn. It works well with the tune of “The Servant Song” composed by Richard Gilliard copyright 1977 Maranatha Music.
Holy Spirit, come with power, breathe into our aching night.
We expect you this glad hour, waiting for Your strength and light.
We are fearful, we are ailing, we are weak and selfish too.
Break upon Your congregation, give us vigor, life anew.
Holy Spirit, come with fire, burn us with Your presence new.
Let us as one mighty choir sing our hymn of praise to You.
Burn away our wasted sadness and enflame us with Your love.
Burst upon Your congregation, give us gladness from above.
Holy Spirit, bring your message, burn and breathe each Word anew
deep into our tired living ’till we strive Your work to do.
Teach us love and trusting kindness, lend our hands to those who hurt.
Breathe upon Your congregation, and inspire us with Your Word.
