A Collect to Receive the Spirit’s Power

Lord God of power, who hung the celestial spheres in their places, send your Holy Spirit upon us, that we might receive power to do good in the world, to fulfill your will and bring about your mission of love, justice, and compassion to all who would receive it, through Jesus Christ our redeemer, who reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God of glory, majesty, and might, forever and ever. Amen. ‘When Paul had laid his hands on them, the Holy Spirit came upon them, and they spoke in tongues and prophesied.’ – Acts 19:6
