Scripture: Acts 2
"When the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place. And suddenly from heaven there came a sound like the rush of a violent wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting. . . ."
Hymn: "I Love To Tell the Story," UMH 156
Katherine Hankey, ca. 1868
". . . I love to tell the story, for some have never heard
The message of salvation from God's own holy Word. . . ."
O Holy Spirit, the force of creation, the Breath of God, blow down on me from heaven so that I may tell the Good News with fresh power.
Open my mouth to speak, open my heart to give, open my eyes to new opportunities to share the gifts of God.
Spirit of God, most of all, open my ears to your clear voice of direction. Without you, I have nothing to say and nothing worth saying. With you, we who are the body of Christ have new life to share with a dying world. Use us, and use me, most Holy Spirit.
