A Prayer for the Power of the Spirit Among the People of God

This prayer was composed by a team of Episcopalians and Lutherans, written “to unite us in common prayer and revive us for common mission” during the COVID-19 crisis. In the spirit of Pentecost, Episcopal Presiding Bishop Michael Curry and his Lutheran counterpart, Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton, invite congregations to pray it from Pentecost through the first Sunday in September.


God of all power and love,

we give thanks for your unfailing presence

and the hope you provide in times of uncertainty and loss.

Send your Holy Spirit to enkindle in us your holy fire.

Revive us to live as Christ’s body in the world:

a people who pray, worship, learn,

break bread, share life, heal neighbors,

bear good news, seek justice, rest and grow in the Spirit.

Wherever and however we gather,

unite us in common prayer and send us in common mission,

that we and the whole creation might be restored and renewed,

through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
