1st September

What is the fruit of an apple tree? Apples! What is the fruit of the Holy Spirit dwellingholyspirit power within us? This is the subject of today’s Mid Afternoon Prayer. It is worth our prayerful pondering.

What the Spirit brings is very different: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, trustfulness, gentleness and self-control. Since the Spirit is our life, let us be directed by the Spirit. (Galatians 5:22,23,25)

Lord, tell me the way I should follow.
May your good spirit lead me to the land of holiness;

 

Let us pray.

Lord, in answer to our prayer
  give us patience in suffering hardships
after the example of your Only-Begotten Son,
who lives and reigns for ever and ever.
Amen.

If you dont already know it, this is the prayer inviting the Holy Spirit into our lives. It is worth adding to our daily list.

Come O Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful and enkindle in them the fires of your love, send forth your Spirit and they shall be created and you shall renew the face of the earth.

O God who by the light of the Holy Spirit do instruct the hearts of the faithful, grant that by the gift of the same Holy Spirit we may be always truly wise and ever rejoice in his consolation, through Christ our Lord, AMEN.
