Shock of the Spirit

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.

--Janet Morley in All Desires Known

(Honestly, this book is a treasure of collects, prayers, psalms and litanies. If it isn't on your bookshelf, I highly, highly recommend it.  --revkjarla)
