Pentecost Sunday Prayer
By Peter Menkin

The Spirit settles in subtle ways, for
I am empty and forlorn, so I hope and pray.
Tongues of language and flames.

Lord.

I search;
let me welcome the Holy Spirit.

The God who brought men
and women out of Egypt to freedom;
let God do this emancipation:
accept and welcome,
and let us receive the Spirit.

Reach out, lift the heart, have faith that
the Spirit fire comes settling in, penetrating us:
Goodness.

Tongues of language and flames.
Dance in our hearts.

Let it be me in Church,
let it be me, let it be others.
Come Holy Spirit.

Consuming fire; burning yes.
