Invocation for Pentecost 14

Based on John 6:56-69

God of spirit and life, we greet this new day in anticipation of what you will speak into our lives. As we ponder how you are present to us in Christ, we are at times perplexed, at times inspired, at times comforted, and at times challenged. We wonder how we may live by your Word to us when at times we're not sure we're up for accepting its implications. Yet this same word calls us to a renewed life in which you are our foundation in whom we trust. Open us to your Spirit, and by it may we live in love and truth. Amen.
