Opening Prayer for Pentecost

Here’s a prayer of invocation for Pentecost. It was written by Janet Morley, and posted on the Monthly Prayers page of the Christian Aid website.

Prayer of Invocation for Pentecost
(inspired by the events in Acts 2:1-13)

Spirit of truth 
Whom the world can never grasp, 
Touch our hearts 
With the shock of your coming; 
Fill us with desire 
For your disturbing peace; 
And fire us with longing 
To speak your uncontainable word 
Through Jesus Christ. Amen.
