Let’s all join together in prayer and pray the Holy Spirit Novena which starts today and ends on Sunday, June 4th. In times like this, we need another outpouring of the Holy Spirit now more than ever.
A novena is a prayer said once daily in 9 consecutive days, which began when, right before Jesus ascended into Heaven, he told the apostles to go to Jerusalem “And [behold] I am sending the promise of my Father upon you; but stay in the city until you are clothed with power from on high” (Luke 24:49; New American Bible Revised Edition).
So then all the apostles went there and “devoted themselves with one accord to prayer, together with some women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and his brothers” (Acts 1:14).
“When the time for Pentecost was fulfilled, they were all in one place together. And suddenly there came from the sky a noise like a strong driving wind, and it filled the entire house in which they were. Then there appeared to them tongues as of fire, which parted and came to rest on each one of them.
And they were all filled with the holy Spirit and began to speak in different tongues, as the Spirit enabled them to proclaim” (Acts 2:1-4).
And thus, was the first novena instituted which resulted in the outpouring of the Holy Spirit in Jerusalem where people from all around the world that traveled there heard the apostles preach to them each in their own language and were converted. “Those who accepted his message were baptized, and about three thousand persons were added that day” (Acts 2:41).
So please, everyone, join together in prayer to celebrate this monumental event in history and pray for an outpouring of the Holy Spirit once more. And remember, if you haven’t prayed in a while, now is the best time to start! Remember always that God loves you and he’s been waiting to hear from you again.
