Pentecost Sunday 5th June 2022
Prayer for Pentecost Sunday
may we say “yes” to you
so that the Spirit in our hearts
will once again be set ablaze.
Spirit of Wisdom,
guide our actions so they tell of God’s love.
Spirit of Truth,
open our eyes to see the world as it really is.
Spirit of Power,
enthuse us to work for justice throughout the world.
Spirit of Love,
inspire us to respect the dignity of each person.
Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful.
Come, Holy Spirit, fill our hearts.
Come, Holy Spirit, fill us.
Come, Holy Spirit.
Pray for all our young parishioners who are preparing to sit their Junior and Leaving Certificate Exams.
Lord, I know you are with me and love me.
Give me peace of mind
as I prepare for this time of study.
Help me to focus on my books and notes.
Keep me from all distractions so that I will make
the best use of this time that is available to me.
Give me insight
that I might understand what I am studying,
and help me
to remember it when the time comes.
I thank you for the ability to be able to study
and for the many gifts and talents
you have given me.
Help me always to use them in such a way
that they honour you and do justice to myself.
Your prayers are requested for the repose of the soul of Patricia Woods (nee Branigan) Wintergrass, Bellewstown and late of Saddlestown Stamullen.
Please remember all bereaved in your prayers
