Pentecost

From Prince Caspian: 

Lucy buried her head in his mane to hide from his face. But there must have been magic in his mane. She could feel lion-strength going into her. Quite suddenly she sat up.

 

I’m sorry, Aslan,” she said, “I’m ready now.”

 

Now you are a lioness,” said Aslan, “And now all Narnia will be renewed. But come. We have no time to lose.(151)”

 

Acts 1:8:

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

 

Lion of Judah,

  We are fearful people

   who fail to bear witness to Your presence.

   Fill us with your Spirit–

                     the Spirit of Love,

                     the Spirit of courage,

                    the Spirit of  gentleness,

                    the Spirit of power,

                    Spirit of Christ.

By your Spirit you have bound us together as a Church

and commissioned us to share your Kingdom presence 

with your world. 

 

May your Spirit embolden us so that all the earth may taste your renewal. 

May the Spirit be our strength and our guide. 

 

     

 

   

 

 

One thought on “Pentecost

  1. Prince Caspian has to be the least quoted of the Narnia books, but that’s a lovely passage.
    Be blessed with the magic of the mane this year.
