From Chalice Worship (1997), of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ):

Holy Spirit, come like a mighty rushing wind and awaken us out of our complacency, our apathy, our indifference.  Disturb us, for we are too content to let things to go on as they are and to let people go on not knowing you.  Penetrate the closed gates of our hearts and make us live again.  O Holy Spirit, create among us a mighty Christian revolution and cast the fear of the unknown out of our lives.  Amen.

From Chalice Worship (1997), of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ):

Living God, your powerful Spirit made his apostles bold on the day of Pentecost, and set them free from self-consciousness and fear to proclaim the good news of Christ.  As we are together here for praise and prayer, fill us with the same Spirit, so that we may be bold to proclaim the good news again, to the ends of the earth; to the honor of your great name.  Amen.
