A Collect Asking for the Gifts of the Spirit

Holy Spirit, the presence of God within our very souls, grant to us gifts of your power and presence, and keep us from stifling them, that your message would be spread throughout the world and many would be inspired to seek you and enter the kingdom of heaven, including even us who share your words, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who reigns in heaven in glory with the Father in you. Amen. ‘In the last days it will be, God declares, that I will pour out my Spirit upon all flesh, and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams.’ – Acts 2:17
