THE GOSPEL

John 14:15-21

And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate
to be with you always.

Jesus,

you show yourself to us
through your
Spirit.

Please
breathe
that
Spirit
 again.

 This whole planet needs it now.

Instruct our scientists how
to find cures for
 the virus
and
other
climate problems.

And,
inspire us to learn new ways of
feeding our globe’s
family.

Help us learn how to love
you by taking care of
all creatures and
all creation.

We want to love you, Lord.
That is everything.
Show us
how.


THE FIRST READING

Acts 8:5-8, 14-17

For unclean spirits, crying out in a loud voice,
came out of many possessed people.

Phillip brought your word to the possessed.
Unclean spirits went out of them;
great joy came
to Samaria.

Lord, please,
get the unclean virus
to come out of
the people.

Let the
Holy Spirit
enter at once, to
put signs of yourself
within our lives
this very
  day.


THE SECOND READING

1 Peter 3:15-18

For Christ also suffered for sins once,
the righteous for the sake of the unrighteous.

How hard it is to
suffer.

You,
 Christ,
 suffer with us.

Let us swing wide our doors
to let in your suffering
whenever it
 knocks.

Let the Holy Spirit entice us
to know you better,
to love you
more.

Let us come to life
in that Spirit.
