1 Thessalonians 1:5 For our gospel did not come to you in word alone, but also in power and in the holy Spirit and (with) much conviction.
“My child, what kind of witness are you? Does what you profess illuminate your every thought, word, and deed? Are you proclaiming the gospel in the power of the Holy Spirit on in your own power? I tell you, if the first Christians had acted in their own power, the Church would have died in its infancy. It is the Holy Spirit that has sustained the faith in all ages. No act of man can build the Church, but only the power of the Holy Spirit acting through human agents. Children, enter into the Breath of Love that flows between the Father and Son. Pray with conviction. Learn to listen to the still small voice of the Spirit. Invoke the aid of his beloved Spouse. Pray for an infilling. He waits to be invited. Do not make him wait. The Day of the Lord is near!”
O my Lord, beloved Holy Spirit, Breath of Love, by the intercession of your beloved Spouse, I ask for an infilling of your Spirit, so that I may be a more credible witness to the faith. Do not let the distractions of daily life keep me from union with you, but use everything for your glory. Use me as you wish, Beloved, to accomplish your holy designs upon the world. Come Holy Spirit, come! My heart is open. Come! Amen.
