Spirit of God
You are the breath of creation
The wind of change
Speak through our dreams tonight
Song “Lead kindly light”
Forgive us our closed minds
And break down the barricades of our hearts
So we can embrace new ways of being
We say the Lord’s Prayer in our own language
Reading Acts 20
22 “And now, compelled by the Spirit, I am going to Jerusalem,not knowing what will happen to me there. 23 I only know that in every city the Holy Spirit warns me that prison and hardships are facing me. 24 However, I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace.
We pray tonight for all those we know who need our help and prayers who we carry in our hearts tonight.
Spirit of the Living God present with us now enter their bodies, minds and spirits and heal them of all that harms them. Let your angels be beside them at this time and protect them. In Jesus Name we pray.
In the depth of silence
No words are needed
We are just called to listen
To the movement of the Spirit
And in the midst of confusion
To hear your voice.
