Pentecost

Pentecost Sunday, Year A

Pentecost: Another high holy day of the Christian calendar. Called by many the birthday of the church, Pentecost represents a passing of the mantle of sorts—from the Incarnate Christ to the ever-present Spirit, the reminder of the God within, the sustainer, the teacher, the strengthener. Pentecost is a day of celebration for all that God has done and is doing within the life of the church.

Offertory Prayer

Holy God, thank you for sending your Spirit, the Spirit of the risen Christ, from heaven. Help us to be like the early disciples, praying patiently as we wait for your guidance and power. Fill our hearts and minds with your gifts of faith, hope, and love. May our conversations with people of every language and culture around us witness to your grace and mercy. We dedicate ourselves and our offerings to your good purposes in the world through our church’s mission by the power of your Spirit. We pray in Jesus’ name. Amen. (Acts 2:1-21)

Oraciones para ofrendar

Santo Dios, gracias por enviar tu Espíritu Santo. Ayúdanos a ser como los primeros discípulos que oraban pacientemente esperando que derramaras tu poder sobre sus vidas. Llena nuestros corazones y mentes de fe, esperanza y amor. Que nuestras conversaciones con personas de diferentes idiomas y culturas sean testigos de tu gracia y misericordia. Nos dedicamos a ti y dedicamos nuestras ofrendas a buenos propósitos en el mundo a través de la misión de nuestra iglesia por el poder de tu Espíritu Santo. Oramos en el nombre de Jesús. Amén (Hechos 2:1-21).
