Prayer for the Seven Gifts of the Holy Spirit

O Lord Jesus Christ, Who,

before ascending into heaven,

didst promise to send the Holy Ghost

to finish Thy work in the souls

of Thy Apostles and Disciples,

deign to grant the same Holy Spirit to me,

that He may perfect in my soul

the work of Thy grace and Thy love.

Grant me the Spirit of Wisdom

that I may despise the perishable things of this world

and aspire only after the things that are eternal,

the Spirit of Understanding to enlighten my mind

with the light of Thy divine truth,

the Spirit of Counsel

that I may ever choose the surest way

of pleasing God and gaining Heaven,

the Spirit of Fortitude

that I may bear my cross with Thee,

and that I may overcome with courage

all the obstacles that oppose my salvation,

the Spirit of Knowledge

that I may know God and know myself

and grow perfect in the science of the Saints,

the Spirit of Piety

that I may find the service of God sweet and amiable,

the Spirit of Fear

that I may be filled with a loving reverence towards God,

and may dread in any way to displease Him.

Mark me, dear Lord,

with the sign of Thy true disciples

and animate me in all things with Thy Spirit.
