Prayer at Mass Today

Lord Jesus, before ascending to your Father you promised to send the Holy Spirit to your disciples. We ask you now to send your Holy Spirit upon our Parish and give us:


The Spirit of Wisdom that we may discern the way forward

The Spirit of Piety that we may love you with true devotion

The Spirit of Courage that we may witness to you come what may

The Spirit of Knowledge that we may know you in friendship and love

The Spirit of Understanding that our minds will be enlightened by truth

The Spirit of Counsel that we may choose the right path to follow

The Spirit of Awe and Wonder that we may be filled with loving reverence for you


Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your people and kindle in us the fire of your love. Send forth your Spirit and we shall be created and you shall renew the face of the earth.
