May 17 Prayer
Prepare for the holy spirit
The gift given to us who believe
Wisdom, courage, joy and strength
His spirit is ever lasting love
And this is the gift we can receive.
This is the way of repentance
If we can change the way we think about our own lack. It’s a turning toward something greater, a greater grace that is enough,
that is all we need.
Jesus knows who he is and where he is from.
One from the One, God from God.
In his name we receive the Holy Spirit,
In his name we live, we
breathe in his completeness,
and in his joy and strength we
do the greater works.
Let us look at him as our greater source,
the only grace we need.
‘We give you Lord, our lack, our need,
our desire to be everything to everyone.
We look to you today to
receive the greater gift of your Holy Spirit
to come and empower us.
Prepare us and change our minds to see beyond the natural and see Jesus in everyone we meet.
Let us walk on
from the beautiful gate where we have received grace upon grace so
we may give it away to those who lack,
and to those in need.
We pray in Jesus name,
Come Holy Spirit!
John 16;29-33, Acts 3:1-7
