Change us, Lord, that we might feel the presence of the Holy Spirit
Set our hearts on fire for you, not just today, but every day.
Holy Spirit, rain down on this place
Let our souls drink your goodness
Let our hearts overflow
Holy Spirit, rain down on this place!
Fire from heaven
not raining-down-destruction fire
but lighting fire,
on soul kindling
waiting for blessing.
Great Physician and Healer of the Nations . . .
Heal us:that the cancer of our internal divisions and jealousies may be cured.

Para los hebreos, el Pentecostés era la Fiesta de los 50 das, el día de los primeros frutos, el final del perodo de luto, día de bodas y alegría. Para los cristianos vino a ser la fiesta para celebrar la venida del Consolador, del Espíritu prometido por Jesús a Sus discípulos. Este día también se celebra el nacimiento de la iglesia.Dia de Pentecosts »
