We praise you because your Spirit came to those believers who had gathered in expectant worship seven weeks after Jesus had been crucified and had been raised from the dead.
We praise you because your Spirit remained with those believers and has been with your people ever since.
We praise you that your Spirit will come to those believers who gather in expectant worship two thousand years after Jesus was crucified and was raised from the dead.
We praise you that your Spirit remains with us believers and will be with us from now on.
We praise you, O God, that you in your grace choose to be with us through your Spirit to enliven us, to empower us, to enlighten us, to challenge us, to comfort us, to convict us, and to lead us.
Make us always aware of the presence of your Spirit; make us always open and responsive to your Spirit’s leadership.
