Prayer of invocation to the Holy Spirit


Can anyone think of a prayer of invocation to the Holy Spirit that would be fitting for a youth leadership seminar ?


O heavenly King, the Comforter, the Spirit of Truth,
Who are present in all places and fill all things,
Treasury of blessings and giver of life,
Come and abide in us,
Cleanse us from every stain,
And save our souls, O Good One.


I’ve gotten that alot but the problem is the guy who has to aprove it all dosent like the old language


Oh, Holy Spirit,
Beloved of my soul.
I adore Thee.
Enlighten, guide, strengthen and console me.
Tell me what I must do,
and help me to do it.
I promise to be submissive to all that you ask of me,
and to accept all that you permit to happen to me.
Let me only know Your will.


Change “Thee” to “You” if it is too “old-fashion” a word for the guy in charge.


What’s “old language” about this?

It’s the current translation of the prayer as used in the Melkite Catholic Church in the USA!
