Today is Pentecost - when Jesus' disciples were empowered by the coming of the Holy Spirit.

Please pray; 

- thanking God, that we can be empowered by the Holy Spirit, to follow Jesus' teachings in our lives.

- giving thanks, that the Holy Spirit draws us into one Christian family.

- giving thanks, that the Holy Spirit's work can not be hindered by lockdown, or any other human barrier.

This Week's Readings:

Acts 2:1-4 & 16-21(NIV)

The Holy Spirit Comes at Pentecost

1When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. 
2Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. 
3They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. 
4
All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues a as the Spirit enabled them.


16This is what was spoken by the prophet Joel:
17
β€œβ€―β€˜In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams.
18
Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy.
19
I will show wonders in the heavens above and signs on the earth below, blood and fire and billows of smoke.
20
The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord.
21
And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.’ c
