Sermon Illustrations on the Holy Spirit

O heavenly Father, the author and fountain of all truth, the bottomless sea of all understanding, send, we beg you, your Holy Spirit into our hearts, and lighten our understandings with the beams of your heavenly grace. We ask this, O merciful Father, for your dear Son, our Savior, Jesus Christ’s sake. Amen.

Nicholas Ridley


Creator Spirit, by whose aid

The world’s foundations first were laid,

Come, visit every pious mind;

Come, pour thy joys on humankind;

From sin and sorrow set us free, And make thy temples worthy thee.

John Dryden


Glory be to You, O Father everlasting, who did send your only-begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him. Glory be to you, O Lord Jesus Christ, who has brought life and immortality to light through the Gospel. Glory be to you, O Holy Spirit, who does enliven us together with Christ, and does shed abroad His love in our hearts. Blessed be to you, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, one God; and blessed be your glorious name for ever. Amen

Triune God, we praise You today for sending Your Spirit who bears witness of all Christ has done for us. We no longer have to find You in one place because You have come to us. Through Your Holy Spirit, You never leave us nor forsake us. You are here with us now, and for that we give You thanks. Amen

O God, the Father Almighty, who hast promised to give the Holy Spirit to them that ask thee; look graciously upon us assembled with one accord in one place to make our prayer unto thee, and to wait for thy promise and of thy abundant mercy renew in our longing hearts thy Holy Gift; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
