Finally, the Prayers of the Church for Pentecost Sunday

O Lord, our God, You have raised us from the dry bones of our hopelessness through the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. Give to us Your Spirit as He has promised, that we may faithfully accomplish Your purpose and speak Your Gospel to all nations and all peoples. O Lord, pour out Your Spirit, that all who call on the name of the Lord may be saved.

O Lord, our God, You spoke, and a world heard in their own tongues the saving name of Jesus. Give us both courage and strength, that we may still speak Jesus Christ. Grant to the missionaries in foreign lands Your blessing and Your protection, that all their work may be fruitful. Bless those who plant hope through missions in our own nation. O Lord, pour out Your Spirit, that all who call on the name of the Lord may be saved.

O Lord, our God, renew Your Church by the power of Your Holy Spirit. Make us to know Jesus Christ and Him crucified and to herald this Good News in faithful words and works. Bless the Synod and Matthew, our Synod president. Bless the district and our district president. Bless this and all congregations; and all pastors, that with conviction we may proclaim the Gospel and with faithfulness serve where You have called us. O Lord, pour out Your Spirit, that all who call on the name of the Lord may be saved.

O Lord, our God, give Your protection to all who travel, that they may arrive at their destinations safely. Bless those who protect and defend us here at home and the men and women of our armed forces throughout the world. Guard those entrusted with the offices and agencies of government, here and everywhere. Give peace to our troubled world, and bless those who work for peace in every way and in every place. O Lord, pour out Your Spirit, that all who call on the name of the Lord may be saved.

O Lord, our God, heal the sick, comfort the troubled, console the grieving and give Your peace to the dying, remembering especially before You this day those listed above, that everyone who cries to You in their need may know the full consolation of Your love, sustaining them in their afflictions and sorrows until You deliver them all to everlasting light and life. O Lord, pour out Your Spirit, that all who call on the name of the Lord may be saved.

O Lord, our God, meet us now, as You have promised, when You set aside bread to be the flesh of Christ and wine to be His blood, that we and all who commune today may receive Your heavenly benediction and be fed and nourished to everlasting life. Grant that what we have here received we may keep in holy hearts and show forth in holy lives, to the praise of Your glory. O Lord, pour out Your Spirit, that all who call on the name of the Lord may be saved.

O Lord, our God, we pray not as we ought but as we are able, delivering to You the burdens of this mortal life and the care of our hearts with confidence and trust that Christ has done all things well and will give to us all things needful and beneficial. O Lord, pour out Your Spirit, that all who call on the name of the Lord may be saved. Amen.
