Prayer of Invocation for Pentecost

Spirit… spirit… spirit… spirit…

The crunch of word
the splash of light
the run of water

Spirit… spirit… spirit… spirit…

The breaking of word
the flow of light
the rush of water

Spirit… spirit… spirit… spirit…

Come Spirit
scoundrel of grace
invade and infect us
with goosebumps and justice

Come Spirit
spark in the chaos
and unstop our ears
to the song in creation

Come Spirit
rascal of heaven
bring us to the edge
of all things created

Come Spirit of grace
Come Spirit of life
Come Spirit of creation
Come now… now… now… now
