Prayer for the Gifts of the Holy Spirit
The Spirit of Wisdom that I may despise the perishable things of this world
and aspire only after the things that are eternal,
The Spirit of Understanding to enlighten my mind with the light of Your divine truth,
The Spirit of Counsel that I may ever choose the surest way of pleasing God and gaining heaven,
The Spirit of Fortitude that I may bear my cross with You and that I may overcome with courage
all the obstacles that oppose my salvation,
The Spirit of Knowledge that I may know God and know myself and grow perfect in the science of the Saints,
The Spirit of Piety that I may find the service of God sweet and amiable, and
The Spirit of Fear of the Lord that I may be filled with a loving reverence towards God
and may dread in any way to displease Him.
Mark me, dear Lord, with the sign of Your true disciples and animate me in all things with Your Spirit.
Acts 1, 12:14 tell us that after Christ ascended in to heaven, Mary and the disciples went to the upper room and prayed together for nine days. Let us follow their example by praying together this Novena to the Holy Spirit after Holy Mass starting on Friday 22nd May 2020 until Pentecost.
