Reflection

Rain On Us Lord ~ By Deborah Ann

Rain on us Lord,
pour down Your holy fire
give every heart on earth
for You, a burning desire.

Flood us in Your love,
sprinkle us with Your grace
let the showers of Your mercy
every soul come to embrace.

Rain on us Lord,
let the skies open up wide
pour out life-giving water
till You gather Your bride.

Send on us a torrent,
of Your power and might
drench us with the peace
of Your saving light.

Rain on us Lord,
ignite a burning desire
set every soul aflame . . .
with the Holy Spirit’s fire!

Scripture

“And they said one to another,
Did not our heart burn within us,
while he talked with us by the way,
and while he opened to us the scriptures?” -Luke 24:32

Prayer

Lord,
by the light of the Holy Spirit
you have taught the hearts of your faithful.
In the same Spirit
help us to relish what is right
and always rejoice in your consolation.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
Amen.

Our Lady Queen of Peace pray for us.

St Joseph pray for us
