This Litany for Pentecost Sunday is taken from a reading of the Lectionary passages for the day.
God, let us walk in the persuasive love and power of your Spirit,
Seeing with your vision,
Dreaming with your creativity,
Speaking the universal language of love. (1)
You are making yourself available to us:
Through Christ and his communion,
You are making yourself known to us,
Through Spirit and her presence.
Grant that we may cast off our old prejudices:
And that we may follow the wind of your spirit
Wherever it goes,
Listening to the whispering rustle of your voice, (2)
Wherever we hear it.
The energy of your spirit
Is the energy we need
To power our good works,
To fuel our imaginations.
Pour out your Spirit upon us,
That we may speak to death and bring forth life, (3)
Embody your ways,
And create with you your city of light.
1) Acts 2:6
2) Acts 2:2
3) Ezekiel 37:9
