It’s time to celebrate our Church’s birthday, the day of the Descent of the Holy Spirit (See Acts 2:1-22; 1 Corinthians 12:3-13; John 10:19-23)! We celebrate Pentecost this Sunday!

After Jesus’ Resurrection and Ascension, He did not leave us alone. He founded the Church by giving Peter (the rock, our first pope) the Keys to the Kingdom, and He revealed the Trinity to us—something we could never know about Him unless He told us Himself. He’s always with us!

What a glorious gift! How wonderful the gifts of the Holy Spirit are!

Invite Him into your heart: “Come, Holy Spirit.” Compiled below is a list of songs to thank God for His Church, ask that His presence be in our hearts, and remind us of God’s unconditional and unfailing love for us.

Something wonderful about Christian music is that it’s not just a song—it’s all prayers! Below are the links for you to listen to the songs and a section of the lyrics for you to pray this day.

Presenting The Ultimate Pentecost Playlist:

1. Build Your Kingdom Here by Rend Collective

Come set Your rule and reign

In our hearts again

Increase in us we pray

Unveil why we’re made

Come set our hearts ablaze with hope

Like wildfire in our very souls

Holy Spirit come invade us now

We are Your Church

And we need Your power

In us

2. Heaven Came Down by David Crowder

Heaven came down and glory filled my soul

When at the cross my Savior made me whole

My sins were washed away

And my night turned to day

When heaven came down and glory filled my soul

O, what a wonderful, wonderful day

Day I will never forget

When I was wondering in darkness away

Jesus my Savior I met

3. Set a Fire by Jesus Culture

Set a fire down in my soul that

I can’t contain

And I can’t control

I want more of you God

I want more of you God.

4. Holy Spirit by Francesca Battistelli

Holy Spirit, You are welcome here

Come flood this place and fill the atmosphere

Your glory, God, is what our hearts long for

To be overcome by Your presence, Lord

Your presence, Lord

5. Fire, Fall Down by Hillsong United

As we seek

Your fire fall down

Your fire fall down

On us we pray

Show me Your heart

Show me Your way

Show me Your glory

6. The Church’s One Foundation (Hymn)

The Church’s one foundation

Is Jesus Christ her Lord,

She is His new creation

By water and the Word.

From heaven He came and sought her

To be His holy bride;

With His own blood He bought her

And for her life He died.

7. Send Us Your Spirit by David Haas

Come Lord Jesus, send us your Spirit,

renew the face of the earth.

Come to us, Spirit of God,

breathe in us now. We sing together.

8. The Summons

Will you come and follow me if I but call your name?

Will you go where you don’t know and never be the same?

Will you let my love be shown? Will you let my name be known,

will you let my life be grown in you and you in me?

9. SpiritSong by Lynn Geyer

You are the fire in my heart, center of my soul,

Light through the darkness!

Holy Spirit come; Holy Spirit come.

Guide me to Your Light, Oh Lord. Holy Spirit come.

10. Glory Be by Chris Tomlin

There’s a song that’s on my lips

From the moment that I rise

To the One who rescued me

And brought me life

Praise awaits You at the dawn

Praise awaits You in the night

With the heavens I will sing

And lift You high

Glory be to God the Father

Glory be to God the Son

Glory be to God the Spirit

All glory to the One

11. Spirit of The Living God by Audrey Assad

Blow, wind of God, with wisdom blow until our minds are free

From mists of error, clouds of doubt, which blind our eyes to Thee

Burn, winged fire, inspire our lips with flaming love and zeal

To preach to all Thy great good news, God’s glorious commonweal.

12. Holy, Holy, Holy (God With Us) by Matt Mahr

You gave up Your only Son

God with us, God with us

So that all the world would know

Our God with us

13. I Am Not Alone by Kari Jobe

I am not alone

I am not alone

You will go before me

You will never leave me

14. Let the Heavens Open by Kari Jobe

You are welcome in this place

Welcome in our hearts

Come and have Your way

God, meet us face to face

All-consuming fire

Move without restraint

Breathe on us

Spirit come

You’re our heart’s desire

We stand in the glory of the King

Knowing that You’re here

You have set us free

You’re here
