Jesus Stories
The Acts of the Apostles

Waiting For the
Holy Spirit

The apostles waited patiently in the upper room.

They prayed continually.

After they had been there about 9 days, they suddenly heard a sound like a mighty wind.

The sound filled the whole house.

Then they could see flames of fire.

The flames of fire settled on the heads of everyone there.

That was the Holy Spirit.

The Holy Spirit came to everyone present.

Suddenly people started speaking languages they didn't know.

The Holy Spirit gave them that gift.

People were amazed.

Everything that Jesus had tried to tell the apostles came clear now.

The apostles finally understood.

They went out among the people to tell them all about Jesus.

They told them of His life, death and resurrection.

That first day, Peter baptized about 3,000 people.

The apostles did a good job.

They told everyone about Jesus.

They told of His love and His Truth.

What do you think?

Did you think the Holy Spirit would come?

Would you have been scared?

Did you know the Holy Spirit would bring gifts?

Write to me and tell me what you think, BUT, ask your parents first.

Let's Pray:
Dear God,
Thank you for all that you do.
Thank you for caring for me.
Help me to always remember I can do anything with your help.
This I ask through Jesus Christ Our Lord.

Can you think of a better prayer?
