Novena Prayer for Pentecost

Sisters of Saint Dominic of Blauvelt, New York Scripture Reflection

Come Holy Spirit, come.

Enter into the minds and hearts of us as one.

Help us to open locked doors

to those seeking unity in our world today.

Unlock the doors of poverty that force so many

to live in misery and desire basic wellbeing.

Unlock the doors of government leaders who rule

for themselves, rather than the common good.

Unlock the doors of prejudice that lock us in rooms

of separation, rather than welcoming the other.

Free us from our own lives to witness what we can

do to give life to so many, as the Church has done

since the first Pentecost.
