Towards a New Awakening: Church of England OnLine Morning Prayer from the day after Ascension Day until the Day of Pentecost

Good prayers for revival from today's Church of England Morning Prayer online:

Send your Holy Spirit upon us,
and clothe us with power from on high. Alleluia.

Blessed are you, creator God,
to you be praise and glory for ever.
As your Spirit moved over the face of the waters
bringing light and life to your creation,
pour out your Spirit on us today
that we may walk as children of light
and by your grace reveal your presence.
Blessed be God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.


A Song of Ezekiel (Ezekiel 36.24-26, 28b)
Refrain:
The Spirit of God fills the whole world. Alleluia.
1 I will take you from the nations, •
and gather you from all the countries.
2 I will sprinkle clean water upon you, •
and you shall be clean from all your uncleannesses.
3 A new heart I will give you, •
and put a new spirit within you,
4 And I will remove from your body the heart of stone •
and give you a heart of flesh.
5 You shall be my people, •
and I will be your God.
Glory to the Father and to the Son
and to the Holy Spirit;
as it was in the beginning is now
and shall be for ever. Amen.
The Spirit of God fills the whole world. Alleluia.


Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your people
and kindle in us the fire of your love.
All who are led by the Spirit of God
are children of God and fellow-heirs with Christ.
Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your people.
Renew the face of your creation, Lord,
pouring on us the gifts of your Spirit,
and kindle in us the fire of your love.
For the creation waits with eager longing
for the glorious liberty of the children of God.
Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your people
and kindle in us the fire of your love.
(cf Romans 8)

Almighty God,
give to all pastors the gifts of your Holy Spirit
that they may be true servants of Christ and of all his people;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.

From here and here between now and Pentecost. 

Prayer for Revival at StB tomorrow, Sunday May 20th, in the hall.
