Let us pray that the flame of the Spirit
will descend upon us.
Father in heaven,
fifty days have celebrated
the fullness of the mystery of your revealed love.
See your people gathered in prayer,
open to receive the Spirit's flame.
May it come to rest in our hearts
and disperse the divisions of word and tongue.
With one voice and one song
may we praise your name in joy and thanksgiving.
Grant this through Christ our Lord.
