Heavenly Father, on Pentecost you poured out your Spirit on the followers of Jesus. Having received the promised gift of the Spirit, the disciples boldly proclaimed the good news of Jesus, who was crucified for the sins of the world and raised to life on the third day. The Holy Spirit has called us through that same good news, and we pray that you would lead us by your Spirit to be bold witnesses for our Savior so that others will come to know and confess Jesus as Lord. Hear our prayer and accept our praise in Jesus’ holy name.
