Today we celebrated the Solemnity of Pentecost - the coming down of the Holy Spirit upon the Apostles

 Prayer for Pentecost

We light a candle, and enjoy the flickering light ,
the fragrance and warmth it creates. 
But without the spark that ignites, there will be no flame. 
Without the wax, the source of power, the wick will not burn. 
Without the flame, there will be no fragrance, no warmth, no light.
And so with us, Lord.
You are the catalyst that ignites us, and the fuel that sustains us. 
You fill us with your fragrance as you enter our lives.
You empower us to carry your flame in our hearts,
to be the fragrance, warmth, and light of your love, 
in this dark world. Amen.
