Dear God,

You know God,

we are entering into that nebulous period

of not quite Pentecost;

and I think about this moment in time;

As we all are waiting for

the Holy Spirit.

(And everything else)


Have you seen her God?

Does she look like a Dove?

Or a Pigeon?

Or a Wild Goose?


Is she majestic?

Or wise?

Or comfortably worn out?


Jesus Christ,

I’m praying to you,

as a not quite feeling Pentecostal Person

over here

Trying to be a part of the Resurrection–

but sometimes just thinking about how

Easter just happened,

and it feels an era ago

and Pentecost feels

wayyyyy to far away

and we humans always seem to be stuck in-between


Send us your Strength Jesus,

Send us your Holy Spirit

Your Sweet Winds,

Your Peace Beyond Understanding

and Perhaps, a little bit of Pentecost

For us waiting in the wings, we pray.
