Prayer for Enlightenment

Prayer for Enlightenment

Holy Spirit, soul of our souls, we adore Thee.
Enlighten us, guide us, strengthen and comfort us.
Tell us what we ought to do, and order us to do it.
We promise to submit to all that Thou requirest from us,
and to accept with love all that Thou allowest to happen to us.  Just show us what Thy will is.
(Cardinal Mercier)

Divine Love, we beg Thee to enlighten our minds so we may know how to bring the gospel message to the souls we meet. Help us, like the early Christians, live with joy in a world that is at times hostile to what we hold dear. 
May we be confident in the knowledge that we are beloved children of God, and that our task is not to rely on our own strength, but rather to be responsive to the promptings of the Holy Spirit as He uses us to be instruments of God’s love. 
We ask that you deepen our life of prayer in the coming months so we may have a more profound sense of The Father’s will in our lives and the courage to carry our that will. 
We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ Our Lord. Amen.

“O Holy Spirit, sweet Guest of my soul, abide in me and grant that I may always abide in You”

 The Women’s Apostolate to Youth invites you to pray for the spiritual well being of children and youth.
