Prayer For Renewal

Lord, we are Your people, the sheep of Your flock. 

Heal the sheep who are wounded, touch the sheep who are in pain, clean the sheep who are soiled, warm the lambs who are cold, 
calm the sheep who fear. 


Help us to know the Father's love through Jesus the shepherd and through the Spirit. 


Help us to lift up that love and show it all over this land. 


Help us to build love on justice and justice of love. 


Help us to believe mightily, hope joyfully, love divinely. 


Renew us that we may help renew the face of the earth. 

Prayer For the Help of the Holy Spirit

O God, send forth your Holy Spirit into my heart that I may perceive, into my mind that I may remember, and into my soul that I may meditate. 

Inspire me to speak with piety, holiness, tenderness and mercy. 

Teach, guide and direct my thoughts and senses from beginning to end. 


May your grace ever help and correct me, and may I be strengthened now with wisdom from on high, for the sake of your infinite mercy.



Come Holy Spirit

Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful and kindle in them the fire of your love. 

Send forth your Spirit and they shall be created. 


And You shall renew the face of the earth. 


O, God, who by the light of the Holy Spirit, did instruct the hearts of the faithful, grant that by the same Holy Spirit we may be truly wise and ever enjoy His consolations, Through Christ Our Lord.



Prayer to the Holy Spirit

Spirit of wisdom and understanding, enlighten our minds to perceive the mysteries of the universe in relation to eternity. 


Spirit of right judgment and courage, guide us and make us firm in our baptismal decision to follow Jesus' way of love. 


Spirit of knowledge and reverence, help us to see the lasting value of justice and mercy in our everyday dealings with one another. 


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.
