Matthew 3:16-17: After Jesus was baptized, just as he was coming up out of the water, the heavens opened and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and coming on him. And a voice from heaven [God The Father] said, ” This is my Beloved Son; with whom I am well pleased.”
O HOLY SPIRIT,
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 fear of God and love of God.
Grant me remorse and patience,
and allow me not to fall into sin.
Grant me an increase of Faith, Hope and Charity.
Strengthen my gifts, virtues and fruits
and bring them forth in my soul so that I will lead a good life.
Make me a faithful follower of Jesus and an obedient child of the Church.
Give me the grace to keep the commandments,
and to receive the sacraments worthily.
Raise me to perfection in the state of life to which you have called me,
and lead me through a happy death, to an everlasting life.
This I ask through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Grant me also, O Holy Spirit,
you the giver of all good gifts,
the special favour for which I now ask:
(Share your request …),
if it be for your greater honour and glory
and for the good of my soul.
Prayer: Glory be … ( 3 times).
… Holy Spirit: Kindle in Me the Fire of Your Love …
