THE COLLECT FOR THE DAY

Almighty God, you have broken the tyranny of sin and have sent the Spirit of your Son into our hearts whereby we call you Father:

Give us grace to dedicate our freedom to your service, that we and all creation may be brought to the glorious liberty of the children of God:

Through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,

who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and for ever. Amen

INTRODUCTION

We offer our worship to the glory of God, Father, Son and Holy spirit and give thanks for the power of Jesus Christ to beat the power of evil.

 

THE COLLECT

Lord, you have taught us that all our doings without love are nothing worth:
send your Holy Spirit and pour into our hearts

that most excellent gift of love, the true bond of peace and of all virtues,
without which whoever lives is counted dead before you.
Grant this for your only Son Jesus Christ’s sake,
who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever. Amen.

The beginning of opposition to our Lord. He is accused of being in league with the powers of evil.

 

POST-COMMUNION PRAYER

INTENTION

Come, Holy Spirit!  Set our hearts afire in worship, and breathe your power and wisdom into our lives.

 

THE COLLECT

God, who as at this time taught the hearts of your faithful people
by sending to them the light of your Holy Spirit:
grant us by the same Spirit to have a right judgement in all things
and evermore to rejoice in his holy comfort;
through the merits of Christ Jesus our Saviour,
who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.  Amen.

 

TODAY’S READINGS (Page 561/564)

First Reading                                        Ezekiel 37:1-14

The Spirit of God breathes new life into those who have lost all hope, enabling them to hear God’s word and live.

 

Second reading                                 Acts 2:1-21

Joel’s prophecy helps Peter to understand the gifts of Pentecost: God’s Spirit empowers men and women to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ to all nations.

 

Gospel                                                  St. John 15:26-27; 16:4b-15

Jesus promises to send the Spirit of truth to all his followers, to help them interpret and apply his teaching in today’s world.

 

POST-COMMUNION PRAYER

Faithful God, who fulfilled the promises of Easter
by sending us your Holy Spirit
and opening to every race and nation the way of life eternal:
open our lips by your Spirit, that every tongue may tell of your glory;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen
