Filled with the Holy Spirit, Jesus left the Jordan and was led by the Spirit through the wilderness, being tempted there by the devil for forty days.
We stand before you, Holy Spirit, as we gather together in your name.
By baptism, we are members of the body of Christ, the people of God. Give us the encouragement we need to bring faith, hope and love in abundance to meet the challenges before us on the Synodal Pathway.
Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful and kindle in us the fire of your love. Send forth your Spirit and we shall be created and you shall renew the face of the earth.
