Day of Pentecost
Watchword for the Week — O Lord, how manifold are your works! In wisdom you have made them all. Psalm 104:24
Sunday, May 20 — Acts 2:1–21; Psalm 104:24–34,35b
Romans 8:22–27; John 15:26–27,16:4b–15
See, the Lord’s hand is not too short to save, nor his ear too dull to hear. Rather, your iniquities have been barriers between you and your God. Isaiah 59:1–2
Jesus said, “I will send the Advocate to you. And when he comes, he will prove the world wrong about sin and righteousness and judgment.” John 16:7–8
Merciful God and Father, you are always ready to receive us whenever we turn to you. Open our eyes to see that it is we ourselves who keep you far from us. Forgive our sin and send your spirit, the spirit of holiness and life, to sanctify us. Amen.
