The Day of Pentecost brings the gift of the Holy Spirit to the young and soon to be growing church. The disciples do not seem to be aware of the divine and holy event about to erupt. They are in the right place, waiting and praying.
Our own growth as Christian people and a congregation likewise depends upon the Holy Spirit – offering guidance and hope. For our own prayers, we seek to depend upon God for our resolve to stay true to our faith. For our own prayers for the church, we ask to be servant people, spreading the Good News, reaching out to the sick and infirm, being those who live by the rule of divine love. It is an amazing experience to be gripped by the Holy Spirit. Receive the gift today.
