A novena is a prayer said once every day for nine consecutive days for a particular intention.
Oh Holy Spirit, You are the Third Person of the Blessed Trinity! You are the Spirit of truth, love and holiness, proceeding from the Father and Son, and equal to them in all things! I adore You and love You with all my heart. Teach me to know and seek God, by whom and for whom I was created. Fill my heart with a holy fear and a great love of Him. Give me compunction and patience, and do not let me fall into sin.
Increase faith, hope and charity in me and bring forth in me all the virtues proper to my state of life. Help me to grow in the four cardinal virtues, Your seven gifts and Your twelve fruits.
Make me a faithful follower of Jesus, an obedient child of the Church and a help to my neighbour. Give me the grace to keep the commandments and to receive the sacraments worthily. Raise me to holiness in the state of life to which you have called me, and lead me through a happy death to everlasting life. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord.
Grant me also, O Holy Spirit, Giver of all good gifts, the special favour for which I ask (………………….. name it); if it be for Your honour and glory and for my well-being.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to The Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
