Prayer of Intercession for Pentecost

    O living God, come and make our souls temples of thy Spirit.  Sanctify us, O Lord! Baptize thy whole Church with fire, that the divisions soon may cease, and that it may stand before the world as a pillar and buttress of thy truth.  Sanctify us, O Lord! Grant us all the fruits of thy Holy Spirit: brotherly love, joy, peace, patience, goodwill and faithfulness.  Sanctify us, O Lord! May the Holy Spirit speak by the voice of thy servants, here and everywhere, as they preach thy word.  Sanctify us, O Lord! Send thy Holy Spirit, the comforter, to all who face adversity, or who are the victims of men's wickedness.  Sanctify us, O Lord! Preserve all nations and their leaders from hatred and war, and build up a true community among nations, through the power of thy Spirit.  Sanctify us, O Lord! Holy Spirit, Lord and source of life, giver of the seven gifts,  Sanctify us, O Comforter. Spirit of wisdom and understanding, Spirit of counsel and strength,  Sanctify us, O Comforter. Spirit of knowledge and devotion, Spirit of obedience to the Lord.  Sanctify us, O Comforter. (Prayer of Taize Community)
