Almighty God,

at the feast of Pentecost

you sent your Holy Spirit to the disciples,

filling them with joy and boldness to preach the gospel:

empower us with that same Spirit

to witness to your redeeming love

and draw all people to you;

through Jesus Christ our Lord,

who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and forever.
