A Collect to be Filled with the Holy Spirit

Almighty God, whose power can do more than we understand, fill us with your Spirit that we might be enabled to do good in the world, spreading your name and fulfilling your mission of healing and reconciliation in every corner, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, world without end. Amen. ‘That message spread throughout Judea, beginning in Galilee after the baptism that John announced: how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power; how he went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with him.’ – Acts 10:37-38
