Prayer on Pentecost Sunday (ELCA Worship in your Home Resource)



On this day of Pentecost we unite in prayer, asking God to send the Holy Spirit on the church, the world, and all who are in need. A brief silence.

We pray for the church around the globe: For the Eastern Orthodox churches, we pray: Come, Holy Spirit! For the Roman Catholic church, we pray: Come, Holy Spirit! For Protestant and Anglican churches, we pray: Come, Holy Spirit! For Pentecostal churches, we pray, Come, Holy Spirit! For evangelicals and independents, we pray: Come, Holy Spirit! For our own congregation, we pray: Come, Holy Spirit! And for everyone who searches for you, we pray: Come, Holy Spirit!

Restore with your breath the whole creation, especially the lands and waters laden with pollution and the animals whose habitats are threatened. For your earth, we pray: Come, Holy Spirit!

Send your Spirit on the leaders of nations, on legislators, and on judges, that the people of the world will benefit from your justice and your peace. For the nations of the world, we pray: Come, Holy Spirit!

Visit all who are suffering, all who feel hopeless, and all who face death. Send healing to those we name here before you (especially) For all who are in need, we pray: Come, Holy Spirit!

Restore to health those who have contracted the virus. Uphold health-care workers, grant jobs to those who are unemployed, and assist researchers in discovering a vaccine. For all who are confronting the coronovirus, we pray: Come, Holy Spirit!

Show our nation and our churches how to connect with those whose language we cannot speak. For the speakers of every language under the sun we pray: Come, Holy Spirit!

Receive our praise for all who for centuries have gone before us in the faith, from the first Pentecost, throughout Christian history, and up to this week. That at the end we and all the saints will rejoice in your presence, we pray: Come, Holy Spirit!

With bold confidence in your love, almighty God, we place all for whom we pray into your eternal care; through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. Amen
