Holy Spirit Novena
Dearest Holy Spirit, confiding in
Your deep, personal love for me, I am making this novena for the following
request, if it be Your Holy Will to grant it:
(mention your request).
Teach me, Divine Spirit, to know and
seek my last end; grant me the holy fear of God; grant me true contrition
Do not let me fall into sin. Give me an increase of faith, hope and charity,
and bring forth in my soul all the virtues proper to my state in life.
Make me a faithful disciple of Jesus
and an obedient child of the Church. Give me efficacious grace sufficient to
keep the Commandments and to receive the Sacraments worthily.
Give me the four Cardinal Virtues, Your Seven Gifts, Your Twelve Fruits.
Raise me to perfection in the state of life to which You have called me and
lead me through a happy death to everlasting life.
I ask this through Christ our Lord, Amen.
