The Day of Pentecost (Whitsunday)
Celebrant: The Lord will pour out his Spirit upon all flesh,
People: And your sons and daughters shall prophesy.
Celebrant: Your old men shall dream dreams,
People: And your young men shall see visions.
Celebrant: You shall know that the Lord is in the midst of his people,
People: That he is the Lord and there is none else.
Celebrant: And it shall come to pass
People: That everyone who calls on the Name of the Lord shall be saved.
Almighty God, on this day, through the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, you revealed the way of eternal life to every race and nation: Pour out this gift anew, that by the preaching of the Gospel your salvation may reach to the ends of the earth; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
O God, who on this day taught the hearts of your faithful people by sending to them the light of your Holy Spirit: Grant us by the same Spirit to have a right judgment in all things, and evermore to rejoice in his holy comfort; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Through Jesus Christ our Lord; according to whose most true promise, the Holy Spirit came down from heaven, lighting upon the disciples, to teach them and to lead them into all truth, giving them boldness and fervent zeal constantly to preach the Gospel to all nations; by which we have been brought out of darkness and error into the clear light and true knowledge of you, and of your Son Jesus Christ.
