The Risen Lord Sends the Holy Spirit Promised to the Disciples
When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like the rushing of a violent wind came from heaven, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw divided tongues that were like fire resting on each one of them. They were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other languages, since the Spirit was giving them the ability to speak fluently. Now there were godly Jewish men from every nation under heaven living in Jerusalem. When this sound was heard, a crowd came together and was confused, because each one heard them speaking in his own language. They were completely baffled and said to each other, “Look, are not all these men who are speaking Galileans? Then how is it that each of us hears them speaking in his own native language? Parthians, Medes, and Elamites; residents of Mesopotamia, and of Judea, Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt, and the parts of Libya around Cyrene; visitors from Rome, both Jews and proselytes; Cretans and Arabs—we hear them declaring in our own languages the wonderful works of God.” They were all amazed and perplexed. They kept saying to one another, “What does this mean?” But others mocked them and said, “They are full of new wine.” (Acts 2:1–13)
Prayers for this day of Pentecost
on this day you taught the hearts of your faithful people
by sending them the light of your Holy Spirit.
By that same Spirit
give us a right judgment in all things
that we may always rejoice in his holy comfort;
through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord,
who with you and the Holy Spirit lives and reigns,
one God, now and forever.

O Lord Jesus Christ,
almighty Son of God,
send your Holy Spirit
into our hearts through your Word,
that he may rule and govern us according to your will,
comfort us in every temptation and misfortune
and defend us by your truth against every error,
so that we may continue steadfast in the faith,
increase in love and all good works
and firmly trust in your grace,
which through death you have purchased for us,
and at last obtain eternal salvation;
you reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit,
now and forever.
