Morning Prayer to the Holy Spirit

Come, holy Spirit, Fill my heart with Your Holy gifts.

Let my weakness be penetrated with Your strength this very day that I may fulfill all the duties of my state conscientiously, that I may do what is right and just.

Let my charity be such as to offend no one, and hurt no one's feelings; so generous as to pardon sincerely any wrong done to me.

Assist me. O Holy Spirit, in all my trials of life, enlighten me in my ignorance, advise me in my doubts, strengthen me in my weakness, help me in all my needs, protect me in temptations, and console me in afflictions.

Graciously hear me, O Holy Spirit, and pour Your light into my heart, my soul, and my mind.

Assist me to live a holy life and to grow in goodness and grace.  Amen

Saint Augustine's Prayers to the Holy Spirit

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 the Son, and equal to Them in all things.  I adore You and love You with all my heart.  Teach me to know and to seek God, by whom and for whom I was created.  Fill my heart with a holy fear and a great love for 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 neighbor.  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 favor for which I ask {name special petition}, if it be for Your honor and glory and for my well being.  Amen.

Holy Spirit of light and love, you are the substantial love of the Father and the Son; hear my prayer.  Bounteous bestower of most precious gifts, grant me a strong and living faith which makes me accept all revealed truths and shape my conduct in accord with them.  Give me a most confident hope in all divine promises which prompts me to abandon myself unreservedly to you and your guidance.  Infuse into me a love of perfect goodwill, and act according to God's least desires.  Make me love not only my friends but my enemies as well, in imitation of Jesus Christ who through you offered himself on the Cross for all people.  Holy Spirit, animate, inspire, and guide me, and help me to be always a true follower of you.  Amen.
