Prayers For Pastors and Congregations–Pentecost Sunday, May 2018
A Prayer for Pastors: O Lord, in many Christian traditions this Sunday is committed to the celebration of Pentecost. I realize it is not necessarily the day that matters, but the impact of the presence of Your Holy Spirit that makes the overwhelming difference in the ministry of our congregation. I pray that as just as on the day of Pentecost that there may be a powerful presence of Your Holy Spirit that will make the spiritual transformational difference in the lives on many people this day. In the name of Jesus, I pray. Amen.
A Prayer for Congregations: O Lord, I long for a sensitivity to the presence of the Holy Spirit in my life. I pray that through worship this weekend I may be deeply sensitive to the presence of Your Holy Spirt in my life. May I seek to share the meaning of the Holy Spirit for my life with others who need the indwelling of the Holy Spirit in their lives. May I be a Pentecost speaker who seeks to clearly communicate with people that they might understand their need for Jesus. In the name of Jesus, I pray. Amen.
