Prayers for Pentecost

Intercessions for morning prayer on Pentecost Sunday, from the Liturgy of the Hours:

On this day of Pentecost, the Church is filled with joy. Strengthened with measureless hope, we pray to Christ, who is calling his Church together in the Holy Spirit.
Lord, renew the face of the earth.

Lord Jesus, raised on the cross, you poured out the water of rebirth for the life of the world – Quicken the life of all people with the gift of the Spirit.
Lord, renew the face of the earth.

Raised up to God’s right hand, you bestowed on the apostles the Father’s Gift;– your Church now waits for the same Gift, the same hope.
Lord, renew the face of the earth.

You breathed your Spirit upon the apostles, and gave them the power of forgiveness:– set all people free today from the prison of sin.
Lord, renew the face of the earth.

You promised to send us the Spirit of truth, that we might become your heralds throughout the world. – Through his presence in the Church may we bear faithful witness to you.
Lord, renew the face of the earth.

And the collect:

Lord God,
you sanctify your Church in every race and nation
by the mystery we celebrate on this day.
Pour out the gifts of the Holy Spirit on all humankind,
and fulfil now in the hearts of your faithful
what you accomplished
when the Gospel was first preached on earth.
Amen.
