Prayer of Intercession
for Pentecost:

(Prayer of Taize Community)
Illustration by Franco Vignazia (c) 1993

O living God, come and make our souls temples of thy Spirit.

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. Grant us all the fruits of thy Holy Spirit: brotherly love, joy, peace, patience, goodwill and faithfulness. May the Holy Spirit speak by the voice of thy servants, here and everywhere, as they preach thy word. Send thy Holy Spirit, the comforter, to all who face adversity, or who are the victims of men's wickedness. Preserve all nations and their leaders from hatred and war, and build up a true community among nations, through the power of thy Spirit. Holy Spirit, Lord and source of life, giver of the seven gifts, Spirit of wisdom and understanding, Spirit of counsel and strength, Spirit of knowledge and devotion, Spirit of obedience to the Lord.
