In preparation of Pentecost--if anyone was looking to pray a novena to the Holy Spirit or looking for some great prayers to the Holy Spirit as we approach the feast of Pentecost:



PRAYER TO THE HOLY SPIRIT
Saint Augustine of Hippo

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.


***

TO THE FATHER, FOR THE GIFT OF THE SPIRIT
Lord, fill our minds and hearts with the fire of the Holy Spirit so that we may serve you in purity of body and please you in cleanness of heart. Through Christ our Lord.

Lord, may the Paraclete who proceeds from You enlighten our minds, and lead us to all truth, as Your Son has promised. Through Christ our Lord.

Lord, may the Holy Spirit cleanse our consciences by His coming, so that when Your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, comes He may find in us a dwelling place prepared for Him. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

O Lord, open my heart to your Holy Spirit and let me be an instrument of your love. I desire to be guided, directed, nourished, and led by your Holy Spirit. O come Spirit of the living God, melt me, mold me, fill me, use me. Amen


***

Holy Spirit, love of the Father and the Son hear my prayer for all those whom You have me to love, by the love you have for them. I pray you, Protect them from all harm, Deliver them from evil, Comfort them in sorrow, Reassure them in anxiety, Give them Your own gladness, And draw them to Yourself
