Prayer to the holy spirit for protection

Spirit of wisdom and understanding, enlighten our minds to perceive the mysteries of the universe in relation to eternity. Spirit of right judgment and courage, guide us and make us firm in our baptismal decision to follow Jesus’ way of love. Spirit of knowledge and reverence, help us to see the lasting value of justice and mercy in our everyday dealings with one another. May we respect life as we work to solve problems of family and nation, economy and ecology. Spirit of God, spark our faith, hope and love into new action each day. Fill our lives with wonder and awe in your presence which penetrates all creation. Amen.

OR

Oh Holy Spirit, You are the Third Person of the Blessed Trinity. You are the Spirit of truth, love and holiness, proceeding from the Father and the Son, and equal to Them in all things. I adore You and love You with all my heart. Teach me to know and to seek God, by whom and for whom I was created. Fill my heart with a holy fear and a great love for Him. Give me compunction and patience, and do not let me fall into sin.

Increase faith, hope and charity in me and bring forth in me all the virtues proper to my state of life. Help me to grow in the four cardinal virtues, Your seven gifts and Your twelve fruits.

Make me a faithful follower of Jesus, an obedient child of the Church and a help to my neighbor. Give me the grace to keep the commandments and to receive the sacraments worthily. Raise me to holiness in the state of life to which You have called me, and lead me through a happy death to everlasting life. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord.

Grant me also, O Holy Spirit, Giver of all good gifts, the special favor for which I ask {name special petition}, if it be for Your honor and glory and for my well being. Amen.

OR

Holy Spirit of light and love, you are the substantial love of the Father and the Son; hear my prayer. Bounteous bestower of most precious gifts, grant me a strong and living faith which makes me accept all revealed truths and shape my conduct in accord with them. Give me a most confident hope in all divine promises which prompts me to abandon myself unreservedly to you and your guidance. Infuse into me a love of perfect goodwill, and act according to God’s least desires. Make me love not only my friends but my enemies as well, in imitation of Jesus Christ who through you offered himself on the Cross for all people. Holy Spirit, animate, inspire, and guide me, and help me to be always a true follower of you. Amen.

OR

Breathe into me, Holy Spirit, that my thoughts may all be holy. Move in me, Holy Spirit, that my work, too, may be holy. Attract my heart, Holy Spirit, that I may love only what is holy. Strengthen me, Holy Spirit, that I may defend all that is holy. Protect me, Holy Spirit, that I may always be holy.

INVITATION TO THE HOLY SPIRIT PRAYER

( A prayer for those wanting more of God.)

“….you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you, and you will be my witnesses….to the ends of the earth” (Acts 1:8).

 Come Holy Spirit, and baptize me with the fire of Your Love.  I have surrendered to the best of my ability, and now I want to be filled with Your Spirit.  I need Your power in my life.  Please come, and fill me now.  Lord, I believe that when I surrendered to you as Lord, we became one.  You are the vine and I am a branch in the vine.  All that you are is within me.  My life flows from You.  I believe that as I yield and ask, You will release Your strength, wisdom, healing, etc. to meet the needs of the hour.  I yield now to receive Your sanctification gifts of Isaiah 11:2; wisdom and understanding, counsel and might, knowledge, faith, healing, miracles, prophecy, discernment, tongues and interpretation of tongues.  I need them to witness to a hurting world.  Only in Your power, guided by Your Spirit, can my life be fruitful.  Holy Spirit come.  Holy Spirit come.  I want it all, wrapped in the greatest gift of all: Love. “”…the greatest of these is love” (1 Corinthians 13:13).  Melt me, mold me, fill me, use me.  Give me opportunities to use Your gifts to reveal Your love and mercy.  Stretch me, Lord.  I will not limit Your gifts to my perceptions of what I can handle.  Holy Spirit, expand my capacity.  Work in me in a powerful way.  I want every purpose God has for my life to be fulfilled, and I need you, might Spirit of God, to bring that purpose to fulfillment.  Come Holy Spirit.  Come.

 As You flow through me to minister to others, I know that You are flowing within me to heal my life too.  Thank You for flooding the deep places of my life with Your electric love.  Thank you for washing and cleansing any wounds and scars from the past that still have the power to dominate my thoughts and suppress my physical and emotional freedom.  Thank You for bringing light into the shadows and warmth to any cold, dark rooms in my soul.  Compassionate Holy Spirit, thank You for coming and drawing out the uncried tears, the unfinished grieving, the pain of loss, the traumas, the fear, the emotional hurts so painful that they were “buried alive.”  Spirit of Wisdom, thank You for coming into the root cause of any chronic failures.  Gentle Holy Spirit, thank You for walking through my early ears and facing the past with me.  Thank You for reminding me that the Love of Jesus was always there, filling in the gap between the love I needed and the love I received.  (Thank the Holy Spirit for scanning your life and bringing to mind any hurtful memories that need to be healed.  When they surface, say simply, “Holy Spirit, I surrender that event to you for your healing.  Thank you for bring Your good out of hurt (Romans 8:28).  Praise You, Jesus.”)  Let this be an opportunity for a deeper release of the holy Spirit as more of your emotional life becomes unbound.

 Thank you, Holy Spirit, for Your presence with me, flowing freely in me and through me.  Thank you for being my friend, my teacher, my comforter, my counselor, my intercessor, and the giver of extravagant gifts.  Thank you especially for ____________________ (Continue thanking Him spontaneously.)

Cardinal Mercier’s Prayer To The Holy Spirit

“I am going to reveal to you a secret of sanctity and happiness. For five minutes every day quiet your imagination, close your eyes to everything visible and your ears to all external sounds and withdraw into the sanctuary of your baptized soul which is the temple of the Holy Spirit. There, speak to the Holy Spirit and say:

“O Holy Spirit

Beloved of my soul I adore you. Enlighten Me Guide Me, strengthen Me and Console me. Tell me what I ought to do and command me to do it. I promise to submit to everything that you ask of me and to accept all that you allow to happen to me. Just show me what is your will.”

If you do this, your life will be happy and serene. Even in the midst of troubles you will experience great consolation, for grace will be given to strengthen and help you to cope with every difficulty”

Act of Consecration to the Holy Spirit

On my knees before the great multitude of heavenly witnesses, I offer myself, soul and body to You, Eternal Spirit of God. I adore the brightness of Your purity, the unerring keenness of Your justice, and the might of Your love. You are the Strength and Light of my soul. In You I live and move and am. I desire never to grieve You by unfaithfulness to grace and I pray with all my heart to be kept from the smallest sin against You. Mercifully guard my every thought and grant that I may always watch for Your light, and listen to Your voice and follow Your gracious inspirations. I cling to You and give myself to You and ask You by Your compassion to watch over me in my weakness. Holding the pierced Feet of Jesus and looking at His Five Wounds and trusting in His Precious Blood and adoring His opened Side and stricken Heart I implore You, Adorable Spirit, Helper of my infirmity, so to keep me in Your grace that I may never sin against You. Give me grace O Holy Spirit, Spirit of the Father and the Son to say to You always and everywhere “Speak Lord for Your servant heareth.” Amen.

Come, Holy Spirit

Come Holy Spirit, and fill the hearts of your faithful, and kindle in them the fire of Your Divine Love. Send forth Your Spirit and they shall be created, and You shall renew the face of the earth. Oh God, Who by the light of the Holy Spirit instructed the hearts of the faithful, Grant, that by the same Spirit we may be truly wise and ever rejoice in His consolation. We ask this through Christ Our Lord. Amen.

St. Augustine’s Prayer to the Holy Spirit

Breathe in me, O Holy Spirit, that my thoughts may all be holy. Act in me, O Holy Spirit, that my work, too, may be holy. Draw my heart, O Holy Spirit, that I love but what is holy. Strengthen me, O Holy Spirit, to defend all that is holy. Guard me, then, O Holy Spirit, that I always may be holy. Amen.

Veni Creator

Come, O Creator Spirit blest! And in our souls take up Thy rest; Come with Thy grace and heavenly aid, To fill the hearts which Thou hast made. Great Paraclete! To Thee we cry, O highest gift of God most high! O font of life! O fire of love! And sweet anointing from above.

Thou in Thy sevenfold gifts art known, The finger of God’s hand we own; The promise of the Father, Thou! Who dost the tongue with power endow. Kindle our senses from above, And make our hearts overflow with love; With patience firm and virtue high The weakness of our flesh supply. Far from us drive the foe we dread, And grant us Thy true peace instead; So shall we not, with Thee for guide, Turn from the path of life aside. Oh, may Thy grace on us bestow The Father and the Son to know, And Thee, through endless times confessed, Of both, the eternal Spirit blest. All glory while the ages run Be to the Father and the Son Who rose from death; the same to Thee, O Holy Ghost, eternally. Amen.

Spreading the Word of God

Lord, you have enriched me

with the strength of your word. You have opened my mind and heart to see the wonders you have created. You have blessed me with the gift of communication to share your divine message.

Holy Spirit, help me to understand

the power of these gifts, and teach me to use them wisely. Bless all who use their talents to communicate the Gospel. Guide those who work in the field of communications to use their power for the good of your people. This I ask through Jesus Christ, Our Lord Amen

I want to be with You and my loved ones in Your perpetual glory.
