A prayer for Pentecost
Wild, Wondrous, Wind of the Spirit
On this day of celebration
enliven us with with the wind of life
that blows within and arounds us,
animating all that has life.
Fill us with joy and laughter.
Free us to dance like the wildflowers
swaying in the breeze,
and the treetops that bend and bow.
Help our spirits soar like hawks
on thermal winds.
Fan the flames of passion within us,
Ignite our imagination for the church,
for the world, for the entire cosmos.
Make us truly awake,
and abundantly grateful
for the gifts of the Spirit
that both unsettle and inspire.
