Prayer for Pentecost

Thou art Fire:
enkindle in me Thy love.
Thou art Light:
enlighten my mind with the knowledge of eternal things.
Thou art the Dove:
give me innocence of life.
Thou art the gentle Breeze:
disperse the storms of my passions.
Thou art the Tongue:
teach me how to bless Thee always.
Thou art the Cloud:
shelter me under the shadow of Thy protection.
And lastly, Thou art the Giver of all heavenly gifts:
animate me, I beseech Thee, with Thy grace;
sanctify me with Thy charity;
enlighten me with Thy wisdom;
adopt me by Thy goodness as Thy child,
and save me in Thy infinite mercy;
so that I may ever bless Thee, praise Thee, and love Thee;
first during this life on earth,
and then in heaven for all eternity. Amen.


  1. Beautiful. Would love to use this in our worship on Sunday, if that is ok with you?

    Hi Keith,
    It is taken from the website above and is the prayer of St Alphonsus Maria de Liguori, born in 1698, so I shouldn't think there would be any copyright issues! I have no rights over this prayer anyway - so, of course!
    Blessings, I am glad you found it meaningful.
