“And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh.” (Joel 2:28 ESV)
Hymn ELH 402:4-6 Holy Ghost, With Light Divine
Holy Ghost, with joy divine
Cheer this saddened heart of mine;
Yield a sacred, settled peace;
Let it grow and still increase.
Holy Spirit, all divine,
Dwell within this heart of mine;
Cast down every idol throne,
reign supreme and reign alone.
See, to Thee I yield my heart,
Shed Thy life through every part;
A pure temple I would be,
Wholly dedicate to Thee.
O Holy Spirit, give me peace and comfort through Your Word, trusting in the promise of forgiveness and salvation. Continue to work through Your Word, bringing to faith those who hear it. Equip all those You have chosen with boldness of faith, to spread Your Word throughout the world, that many more may believe and be saved. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
