Holy Fire at Pentecost

Holy Spirit,
sent by the Father,
ignite in us your holy fire;
strengthen your children with the gift of faith,
revive your church with the breath of love,
and renew the face of the earth,
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
C. of E. Additional Collect Pentecost Sunday

  1. Wonderful. Will add this to my prayer book.

  2. Chelliah - I collect prayers too. This is my fvourite type of 'set prayer'. I like the economy of words, yet it encompasses so much. It occurs to me now that the opening phrase raises the theological question about whether the Holy Spirit is sent by the Father or the Son or from the Father through the Son or both etc. A source of much debate in the church especially in times gone by.
