This prayer is adapted from the 1993 Prayer for Consecration to the Holy Spirit that was prayed across the Diocese of Palmerston North.
Holy Spirit of God, we, the Diocese of Palmerston North,
different peoples, one people of God,
give ourselves over to you.
Through you we know God intimately,
for you are the Spirit of God.
You inspire the Scriptures
which show us that God is like a loving, trustworthy father,
a mother who tenderly gathers her children.
You give us joy in the news of our salvation.
Holy Spirit, work in our midst the miracles
that happen for those who trust you totally –
miracles of conversion, healing and reconciliation;
of new hope, new life and new beginnings.
