God of power,
may the boldness of your Spirit transform us,
may the gentleness of your Spirit lead us,
may the gifts of your Spirit equip us to serve and worship you now
This prayer gives us a way of understanding what Christians
believe the Holy Spirit does in our lives. 'Transforming' or
'changing' us, leading us and equipping us with skills and strength
to serve God. 'Equipping' is a way of saying 'giving'.
