A Collect to Receive and Commune with the Holy Spirit

Loving God, whose nature is relationship and love, may we receive your Holy Spirit and attend to what you speak to us through the Counselor, that we might be with you and you with us as close as our breath, confiding in one another as beloved friends along the way, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit in perfect harmony, world without end. Amen. ‘When he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit.”‘ – John 20:22
