Daily Prayer May 31, 2009–Pentecost Sunday

Holy Spirit, I give You my heart and thank you for unending grace. I ask that You grant me the gift of piety, so that I may serve You with never-ending enthusiasm. Grant me the gift of strength, so that I may courageously overcome the trials of my life. Grant me the gift of counsel, so that I can grow in spirit. Grant me the gift of understanding and wisdom, so that I may rightly direct all my actions to serve You better. Amen.



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 have my being.
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 is listening.” Amen.
