Prayer to the Holy Spirit
Come, Holy Spirit,
fill the hearts of the faithful
and enkindle in them the fire of Your love.
Send forth Your Spirit
and they are created
and You shall renew the face of the earth.
In the Prayer to the Holy Spirit, we ask the Holy Spirit, the third Person of the Blessed Trinity, to light the fire of faith in us as believers. We trust that, with the Holy Spirit alive in our hearts, the face of the earth will be renewed. We ask God to be filled with the Holy Spirit, with the fire of His love.
This is a powerful prayer. It can be prayed in the morning, daily, for healing, in asking for a favor from God, for guidance, for protection, for discernment, or for any petition you may have. The prayer is sometimes referred to as “Come Holy Spirit.” Part of this prayer comes from Psalm 104:30: “When you send forth your spirit, they are created, and you renew the face of the earth.”
Loyola Press has another version of the Prayer to the Holy Spirit on their website as well as more information about this prayer.
