Praying with Out of Darkness

Novena to the Holy Spirit - May 18th

Come Holy Spirit!

In the final day of this novena, we express gratitude to all of you praying with us!


Our prayer today is that we continually be open to the Holy Spirit at work in our hearts, our music and our ministry. As we look toward Pentecost and the beginning of a new venture, we pray that God's will be done and that our ministry would bear the fruits of the Holy Spirit.


We can't wait to share all the details and the vision with you tomorrow! :-) Thank you again for journeying with us! Come Holy Spirit!

Novena to the Holy Spirit - Day 9

Sent With The Power To Reconcile


Thou on those who evermore,

Thee confess and Thee adore,

In Thy sevenfold gifts, descend;

Give them comfort when they die;

Give them life with Thee on high;

Give them joys which never end. Amen.


Father, through Jesus, Your Son, You sent the Paraclete to be at our side, to reconcile all Creation to you.


Grant that I may be forever open to Jesus' invitation to "Receive The Holy Spirit!" Father, open our hearts to accept Your forgiveness for our sins and to offer that same forgiveness to those who we feel have offended us.


For merciful forgiveness is the essence of Your love revealed in Your Son.


Come, O Divine Spirit, fill my heart with Your Heavenly Fruits - Your charity, joy, peace patience, benignity, goodness, faith, mildness and temperance, that I may, by faithful submission to your Inspiration, merit to be united eternally with You in the love of the Father and the Son. Amen.


Pray: Our Father, Hail Mary & Glory Be


Pray: Act of Consecration to the Holy Spirit

On my knees before the great multitude of heavenly witnesses I offer myself, soul and body, to You, Eternal Spirit of God. I adore the brightness of Your purity, the unerring keenness of Your justice and the might of Your love. You are the Strength and Light of my soul. In You I live and move and am. I desire never to grieve You by unfaithfulness to grace and I pray with all my heart to be kept from the smallest sin against You. Mercifully guard my every thought and grant that I may always watch for Your light and listen to Your voice and follow Your gracious inspirations. I cling to You and give myself to You and ask You by Your compassion to watch over me in my weakness. Holding the pierced Feet of Jesus and looking at His Five Wounds and trusting in His Precious Blood and adoring his opened Side and stricken Heart, I implore You, Adorable Spirit, Helper of my infirmity, so to keep me in Your grace that I may never sin against You. Give me grace, O Holy Ghost, Spirit of the Father and the Son to say to You always and everywhere, "Speak, Lord, for Your servant heareth." Amen.


Pray: Prayer For The Seven Gifts of the Holy Spirit

Christ Jesus, before ascending into heaven, You promised to send the Holy Spirit to Your apostles and disciples. Grant that the same Spirit may perfect in our lives the work of Your grace and love. Grant us the Spirit of Fear of The Lord that we may be filled with a loving reverence toward You; the Spirit of Piety that we may find peace and fulfillment in the service of God while serving others; the Spirit of Fortitude that we may bear our cross with You and, with courage, overcome the obstacles that interfere with our salvation; the Spirit of Knowledge that we may know You and know ourselves and grow in holiness; the Spirit of Understanding to enlighten our minds with the light of Your truth; the Spirit of Counsel that we may choose the surest way of doing Your will, seeking first the Kingdom; Grant us the Spirit of Wisdom that we may aspire to the things that last forever; Teach us to be Your faithful disciples and animate us in every way with Your Spirit. Amen.
