O Holy Spirit, through the course of this day grace me with your fruit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.
Glory to you, O Christ, our Master and King, the pride of the apostles, the crown of the martyrs, the joy of the righteous, the firm foundation of the churches, and the forgiveness of sins!
You, O God, have given us your word for a light to shine upon our path. Grant us to meditate on that word, and to follow its teaching, that we may find in it the Light that shines more and more until that perfect day, through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Lord, forgive our trespasses. Lord, visit the sick among your people and heal them to the glory of your holy name. Grant rest to all our family and friends who have departed this life before us. Help us and accept our prayers, O one and only sinless Lord.
O God, give us the strength of your support. Give us encouragement, give the light that goes with it. Make us live by the truths of the faith preached by your holy apostles and the high teaching of the Gospels of our Savior, Jesus Christ.
Absolve, pardon, and remit, O God, all of our transgressions, committed willingly and those unwillingly, known and unknown, the hidden and manifest. Forgive us, Lord, for the sake of your holy name.
Master, Lord, God Almighty! Father of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We thank you for every situation, condition, and moment. You have sheltered and helped us; you have guarded us and accepted us as your own.
Guide us to do those things that are pleasing and dear to you, that through us, unworthy though we are, your all-holy name may be glorified, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, one Godhead and one Kingdom.
Just as you were with your disciples, O Savior, and gave them peace, graciously be with us also: grant us your peace; save us, and deliver our souls.
Today is the feast day of the Holy Prophet Joel, who foretold of the descent of the Holy Spirit of God, fulfilled on the day of Pentecost.
“And it shall come to pass afterward that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh; your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions.” (Joel 2:28)
