Christ is risen! If the Resurrection is the promise that heaven is breaking loose, the Spirit is power of heaven with us. Thanks to Andy Meckstroth, former pastor of Oakland First Baptist Church for this prayer.

Holy Spirit, Mystery of God,
live within us all our days.
Live within our minds
As we attend to the guidance of your wisdom;
Live within our hearts
As we care for others with compassion;
Live within our imagination
As we discover the wonders of creation;
Live within our hands
As we serve those you call into our lives;
Live within our feet
As we remain steadfast on our journey;
Live within our mouths
As we speak kindness and understanding;
Live within our eyes
As we see your presence in our neighbor;
Live within our ears
As we listen for your leading every day.
Holy Spirit, Mystery of God,
Live within us all our days. Amen.
