Introduction and Opening Prayer
Welcome to everyone! I am particularly looking forward to the sharing groups and especially the general plenary session so we can hear what has been going on in your lives over the last week, since our Baptism in the Spirit night. Tonight our topic is Growth in the Spirit.
Lord Jesus, the good I wish to do, I cannot do, but you are living out the mysteries of your life in me. Enable me, by the same Spirit that animated your life of loving service, to continue and to fulfil your mission in my life. Give me the ability to accomplish whatever you ask me to do, in the knowledge that your power is made perfect in weakness and I thank you, that you will enable me to achieve even more than I can ask, or imagine, through the power of your Spirit at work within me. Amen.
– This prayer is partly based on the spirituality of St John Eudes
