WELCOME TO SPRED IRELAND
During a Spred Session the Leader will read a short piece of scripture and this is followed by each person receiving a personal message from Jesus. Each week this page will display both a piece of Scripture and a personal message. I invite you to visit this site each week for your own spiritual nourishment.
Today a friend of Jesus reminds us that we are God's temple
Didn’t you realise that you were God’s temple and that the Spirit of God was living among you? If anybody should destroy the temple of God, God will destroy him, because the temple of God is sacred; and you are that temple.
_____, Jesus says to you today,
I am living within you
Reflection - Fill Us With Your Spirit
Beloved God, we praise you for the life of your Holy Spirit,
inspiring men and women to glorify you in countlessly varied ways.
Lord come to bless us with the life of your Spirit.
Bless us Lord with the life of your Spirit.
Beloved God, we bless you for the joy of your Holy Spirit,
radiating out into the world from the hope-filled hearts of your disciples.
Lord come to bless us with the joy of your Spirit.
Bless us Lord with the joy of your Spirit.
Beloved God, we adore you for the peace of your Holy Spirit,
silently yet powerfully turning, easing, comforting, healing human hearts.
Lord come to bless us with the peace of your Spirit
Bless us Lord with the peace of your Spirit.
Beloved God, breathe your life-giving, joy-giving, peace-giving Spirit
on those to whom we reach out now, to touch with our prayer
God our creator and sustainer,
breathe your Spirit upon us,
into our hearts, into our midst, into our work.
May your Spirit inspire all that we do and the way that we do it.
May your Spirit work through each one of us,
to bring harmony among us and joy in our parish community.
