Prayer Pentecost Sunday:Come, Spirit who is our Light / Shine among the shadows within. Warm and transform our hearts.. / Come, Spirit joy of our souls. / Dance amid life’s hills and valleys. / Encircle us with the delights of your dance. / Come, Spirit of wisdom and insight / Draw us towards your goodness and light. / Direct your growth and guide our ways. / Come, Spirit strength of wounded ones. / Be warmth in hearts of those grown cold. / Empower the powerless, rekindle the weary. / Come, Spirit source of our peace. / Deepen in us the actions of peacemakers. / Heal the divisions that ravage the earth.”   (Joyce Rupp, May I Have This Dance)
