Prayer of welcome for the Holy Spirit

I was tasked with writing a prayer of adoration for Pentecost – and came up with these ways of describing the Holy Spirit. For a while afterwards I wanted to put them to a picture, though it’s hard to find images for the Holy Spirit that do justice to this wonderful person of the Trinity. Imagine my delight then, when I was able to photograph a lectern hanging, whilst visiting a small village Methodist church.


Holy Spirit,

We welcome you.

You are life giving,
Breath filling,
And reviver of the soul.

Holy Spirit,
We welcome you.

Bringer of joy,
Cradle of comfort,
Inseparable companion and guide.

Holy Spirit,
We welcome you.

Revealer of mysteries,
Whisper of wisdom,
Fountain of all understanding.

Holy Spirit,
We welcome you.

Untameable fire,
Unshakeable thunder,
Fierce contender for mercy.

Holy Spirit,
We welcome you.

Creative inspirer,
Delighting admirer,
Preparer for things eternal.

Holy Spirit.
We welcome you.
