For the gifts of the Holy Spirit
Spirit of wisdom, preside over all my thoughts, words and actions,
from this hour till the moment of my death.
Spirit of understanding, enlighten and teach me.
Spirit of counsel, direct my experience.
Spirit of fortitude, strengthen my weakness.
Spirit of knowledge, instruct my ignorance.
Spirit of piety, make me fervent in good works.
Spirit of fear, restrain me from all evil.
Spirit of peace, give me your peace.
Heavenly Spirit, make me persevere in the service of God the Father,
and enable me to act on all occasions with
goodness, patience, charity, joy, generosity,
mildness, and fidelity. Let the heavenly virtues of
modesty, continence, and chastity adorn the
temple you have chosen for your abode, and by
your all-powerful grace, preserve my soul from
the misfortune of sin.
Holy Spirit, as I awake and day begins
waken me to your presence;
waken me to your indwelling;
waken me to inward sight of you,
and speech with you
and strength from you;
that all my earthly walk may awaken into song
and my spirit leap up to you all day,
