Discussion Session 9 Resurrection and Introduction Session 10 Holy Spirit
The Mystery of Faith
Save us, Saviour of the World,
for by Your Cross and Resurrection
You have set us free.
- Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful
- And kindle in them the fire of your love.
- Send forth your Spirit and they shall be created
- And you will renew the face of the earth.
Let us pray
O Risen Lord,
the Way, the Truth, and the Life,
Make us faithful followers of the spirit of Your Resurrection.
Grant that we may be inwardly renewed,
dying to ourselves in order that You may live in us.
May our lives serve as signs of the transforming power of Your love.
Use us as Your instruments for the renewal of society,
bringing Your life and love to all,
and leading them to Your Church.
Be the resurrection and the life in the life we share and the fellowship we enjoy, that filled anew with the wonder of your love and the power of your grace, we may proclaim your resurrection life to a world in the grip of death and yet on the verge of redemption, a redemption promised by you and assured by what occurred on that first Easter morn. This we ask of You, Lord Jesus,
living and reigning with the Father,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
God forever. Amen.
Prayer borrowed from
Before we start here’s a little message from the Monty Python team. In aknowledgment that over the past few weeks we seem to have stepped up a gear or three in our bible studies.
I hope your brain only hurts in a good way.

Revelation 1: 18 – I am the Living One; I was dead, and now look, I am alive for ever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and Hades.
And a verse I always find reassuring
