Open the heavens, Almighty Father,
and pour out your Spirit upon your people.
Renew the power of our Baptismal cleansing,
and fill us with zeal for good deeds.
Let us hear your voice once again,
that we may recognize in your beloved son
our hope in inheriting eternal life.
Grant this through Jesus Christ,
your Word made flesh,
who lives and reigns with you
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
in the splendor of eternal light,
God, forever and ever.
