Almighty Father, whose power knows no limits, fill us with your Holy Spirit and impart to us those gifts that you have chosen for us, that we would be enabled to demonstrate to the world your presence and power and continue as your hands and feet in the world, fostering reconciliation to all people and glorifying your name, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who reigns with you and the Holy Spirit in glory forever. Amen.
'When the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place. And suddenly from heaven there came a sound like the rush of a violent wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting. Divided tongues, as of fire, appeared among them, and a tongue rested on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other languages, as the Spirit gave them ability.' - Acts 2:1-4
