Prayer to the Holy Spirit
Come, Holy Spirit,
fill the hearts of Thy faithful
and enkindle in them the fire of Thy love.
Send forth Thy Spirit
and they shall be created
and Thou shalt renew the face of the earth.
Let us pray:
who didst instruct the hearts of the faithful
by the light of the Holy Spirit,
grant us in the same Spirit to be truly wise,
and ever to rejoice in His consolation.
Through Christ, Our Lord.
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.
