Lord, there is no greater joy than what the presence of your Holy Spirit brings. May we know you more intimately through our time with you today. Draw us close to your heart. Grant us the pleasure of your presence. I ask these things in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“And when they had prayed, the place in which they were gathered together was shaken, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and continued to speak the word of God with boldness.” (Acts 4:31 ESV)
