On one occasion, while he was eating with them, he gave them this command: “Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the gift my Father promised, which you have heard me speak about. For John baptized with water, but in a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.” Acts 1:4-5
WAIT FOR THE GIFT MY FATHER PROMISED
Lord- One of the things I love about you is that you enjoy giving gifts to me. Thank you for these gifts... (Each person can thank God for 2-3 things God has given.) Your presence is the best gift. Holy Spirit I welcome you in my life today. I surrender my will to your desire to guide my thoughts and actions. Amen
FOR JOHN BAPTIZED YOU WITH WATER
Lord- Thank you for the awareness that I need to turn away from my sin and for providing the rescue that I need. Thank you that I have been included in Christ, joined with you in death, resurrection and new life. Holy Spirit please continue to shine light into my dark areas. Empower me to embrace the full truth of your examination. Help me to accept these revelations and invite change as a result of the power you bring by your presence. (Pause for a few moments of silence and quietly confess anything God brings to your mind.) Amen
YOU WILL BE BAPTIZED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT
Lord- Thank you for the work of the Holy Spirit in my life, who brings conviction without condemnation. Through your supernatural work, you saved me, washed me clean, and renewed me through the Holy Spirit. How great your initial transforming power was when I invited you. Please help me to be a worthy host of your presence today. Amen
Father, unleash the power of the Holy Spirit to bring spiritual breakthrough in my life, in our church family, and in our community. Fill us with humility, unity, and passion. Let your kingdom come and your will be done. May the name of Jesus be held in high honor in all that we say and do. Amen.
