05/06/2022 worship on Pentecost Sunday

Yesterday as we celebrated Pentecost, Major Miriam challenged us as we considered the meaning of these words, “To pray and actually mean ‘thy Kingdom come,’ we must also be able to say ‘my kingdom go.’” She also told us that God uses the Holy Spirit to renew our hearts and minds for the moment we first kneel before Him and are saved.

Spirit of the living God,
Fall afresh on me.

At the end of the meeting the band played the hymn tune ‘For the Mighty Moving of thy Spirit’.

As we pray.

For the kindly chiding of thy Spirit
When we thought to find an easier way,
For the gracious guiding of thy Spirit,
And the strength we needed to obey:

For the tender stirring of thy Spirit
Who recalled us when we went astray,
The persistent spurring of thy Spirit,
When we hesitated on the way:
