A Collect to Wait on the Spirit’s Words

Great teacher, who breathed life into well-worn words, the people waited in expectation for you to speak your wisdom. Set in us the desire and will to wait likewise in patient and quiet expectation for the wisdom of your Spirit, that we would not miss your words in our restlessness and haste, through you who holds all knowledge with the Father and Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘And he rolled up the scroll, gave it back to the attendant, and sat down. The eyes of all in the synagogue were fixed on him.’ – Luke 4:20
