The first two verses are a prayer used by the Cursillo Movement; the third from Paul (often used as a response at the start of worship); and the fourth is often used by preachers. As the title implies, these are all prayers frequently used responsively, with one person (or group) saying the first half of the verse, and the rest responding with the second half.
- Come Holy Spirit and burn within us:
now fill the hearts of your faithful people.
- Send out your Spirit and we shall live:
for you will renew the face of the earth.
- Grace to us and peace from God:
from our Father and Jesus Christ our Lord.
- May our words and our thoughts be worthy of you:
for you are our strength and redeem us all.
