A Prayer for Pentecost

God of rushing wind and tongues of fire,

in your Holy Spirit you turn the world upside-down.

By the power of your Holy Spirit,

set our hearts on fire with joy and wonder.

Transform the sadness of many and the bewilderment of most and make this virus season a time of renewal,

rediscovery, solidarity and discovery.

Show us your son’s face

in the face of the stranger, the hungry, and the lost,

that your church on its birthday

may resemble its crucified and risen Lord.

In whose name we pray. Amen.

(Canon Sam Wells)
