Prayer for Enlightenment

Holy Spirit, beloved of my soul, I adore you. I love you. Enlighten me, guide me, strengthen me, console me.

Tell me what I ought to do and command me to do it.

I promise to submit to You and abide to everything you ask of me.

I promise to accept everything You allow to happen to me. Just show me what is Your Holy will.

Spirit of wisdom and understanding, enlighten my mind to perceive the mysteries of the universe and eternity.

Spirit of right judgement and courage, guide us and make me firm in my Baptismal vows to follow Jesus.

Spirit of knowledge and reverence, help me to see the lasting value of justice and mercy as I deal with others.

May we respect life as we work to solve problems of family and nation, economy and ecology.

Spirit of God, spark our faith, hope and love into new action each day.

Fill our lives with wonder and awe in Your presence which penetrates all creation.

Come, Holy Spirit, come.
