As we approach the Christian festival of Pentecost, we celebrate the outpouring of the Holy Spirit upon the Church. As those called to prayer, let us allow the Holy Spirit to so infuse our prayers that they might be aligned with the intercession of heaven. We told in Romans 8:26, that in our weakness we don’t know how to pray as we ought, but yet the Holy Spirit helps us in our prayers and even intercedes for us according to the will of God. Malcolm Falloon offers some brief reflections on Scripture that will help us as we prayer together for ourselves, our families, the Church, and the world.
