Prayer for June - at Pentecost

The Holy Spirit came to inspire the apostles on the day of Pentecost, which we celebrate on the 12th of June this year. So this month we shall pray together this prayer by Dr Olive Wyon, translator and theologian.

Prayer to the Spirit
Spirit of promise, Spirit of unity,
we thank you that you are also the Spirit of renewal.
Renew in the whole Church, we pray,
that passionate desire for the coming of the kingdom
that will unite all Christians in one mission to the world.
May we all grow up together into him, who is our head,
the Saviour of the world, and our only Lord and Master.

Olive Wyon, 1881- 1966
