This prayer is very special to me. After my Grandma Norma passed away, our entire family gathered at her home. While we were there, my husband Ryan picked up a “Catholic” Bible off of one of Grandma’s shelves. Just inside the cover, was the prayer to the Holy Spirit. Ryan was so surprised at finding it there, and he shared with me that this prayer plays a special role in the Great Banquet, a spiritual retreat that at the time, he had attended, and up until that point, I had refused to go to. It was finding this prayer in Grandma Norma’s Bible that led me to attending my own Great Banquet, where I would accept Jesus into my heart in a way that I never had before.
Come 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.
O God, Who didst instruct the hearts of the faithful by the light of the Holy Spirit, grant us by the same Spirit to have a right judgment in all things and ever to rejoice in His consolation. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
