Today’s Prayer

As they prayed, the place where they were gathered shook, and they were all filled with the holy Spirit and continued to speak the word of God with boldness. Acts 4:31

A Pentecost Prayer

Holy spirit,
help me to speak boldly
keep the Savior’s name ever on my lips
as I proclaim his salvation
grace meant for all
and given freely
to anyone who would know him

may my faith be ever present
alive for the world to witness
a reflection of the courage,
and perseverance
bestowed by you

should I be challenged
give me the temerity
to face my detractors
without fear or trembling
speaking always in earnest
and always in love

for Jesus is the truth
the light of the world
his compassion endless
his sacrifice
one life for all
unimaginable

help me to show the world
this Jesus of Nazareth
this God become man
who gave everything
so that we might have life eternal

Amen
