A POWERFUL NOVENA TO THE HOLY SPIRIT: DAY 2 – THE GIFT OF FEAR OF THE LORD

(IT CAN BE PRAYED ANYTIME IN THE DAY)

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen

Hymn

O guide our minds with thy blessed light,
With love our hearts inflame;
And with thy strength, which never decays
Confirm our mortal frame.

Far from us drive our deadly foe;
True peace unto us bring;
And through all perils lead us safe
Beneath thy sacred wing.

Through thee may we the Father know,
Through thee the eternal Son,
And thee, the Spirit of them both,
Thrice-blessed Three in One.

All glory to the Father be,
With his coequal Son;
The same to thee, great Paraclete,
While endless ages run.

 

ACT OF CONSECRATION TO THE HOLY SPIRIT

Catholic Prayer 'Come, Holy Spirit'On my knees, I before the great multitude of heavenly witnesses, 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, to keep me in Your grace that I may never sin against You. Give me grace O Holy Spirit, Spirit of the Father and the Son to say to You always and everywhere, “Speak, Lord, for Your servant heareth.” Amen.

Charles Spurgeon Sermon - Grieving the Holy Spirit | Crying eyes, Things under a microscope, Diamond paintingSCRIPTURAL READING: Ephesians 4:29-30

No foul word should ever cross your lips; let your words be for the improvement of others, as occasion offers, and do good to your listeners; do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God who has marked you with his seal, ready for the day when we shall be set free.

The Word of the Lord…

MEDITATION

The gift of Fear fills us with a sovereign respect for God and makes us dread nothing so much as to grieve or offend Him by sin. The Pauline text above makes it clear that the Holy Spirit could be grieved or saddened by our conducts. When the fear of the Lord is lacking in us, we tend to grieve the Holy Spirit and run short of wisdom. The holy book says that the holy fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom (cf. Job 28:28, Psalm 111:10, Proverbs 1:7; 9:10; 15:33). How foolish we become if we do not fear the Lord! Dear Holy Spirit, grant that we may not sadden you anymore by the continual presence of your gift of holy fear in us.

Pause for a moment and reflect… 

DAY 2 PRAYER

O Holy Spirit, make me faithful in every thought, and grant that I may always listen to your voice, and watch for Your light, 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, looking at His Five Wounds, trusting in His Precious Blood, adoring His opened side and stricken heart. I implore You adorable Spirit, helper of my infirmity, to keep me in Your grace, now and always, and grant us the favour we ask in this novena (State your request here…) if it be in accordance with Your Holy Will. Amen.

 

PRAYER FOR THE SEVEN GIFTS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

La Vida Consagrada: Esposada a Cristo…Seeking the Face of God | Waking Up the WorldO Lord Jesus Christ Who, before ascending into heaven did promise to send the Holy Spirit to finish Your work in the souls of Your Apostles and Disciples, deign to grant the same Holy Spirit to me that He may perfect in my soul, the work of Your grace and Your 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 Your 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 You 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, and the Spirit of Fear that I may be filled with a loving reverence toward God and may dread in any way to displease Him. Mark me, dear Lord, with the sign of Your true disciples, and animate me in all things with Your Spirit. Amen.

Our Father… Hail Mary…. (Glory be….X7)

Concluding Meditation/Prayer

The holy fear of the Lord arises not from the thought of hell, but from sentiments of reverence and filial submission to our heavenly Father. It is the fear that is the beginning of wisdom, detaching us from worldly pleasures that could in any way separate us from God. They that fear the Lord will prepare their hearts, and in His sight will sanctify their souls.

Come, O blessed Spirit of Holy Fear, penetrate my inmost heart, that I may set you, my Lord and God, before my face forever, help me to shun all things that can offend You, and make me worthy to appear before the pure eyes of Your Divine Majesty in heaven, where You live and reign in the unity of the ever Blessed Trinity, God world without end. Amen.

Novena to the Holy Spirit - YouTubeCome, Father of the poor. Come, treasures which endure. Come, Light of all that live, and grant peaceful rest to our bodies tonight, so that we may rise with joy to sing your praise. Amen.

Blessing+

The Lord bless us, protect us from all evil and bring us to everlasting life. Amen.

Shalom!

So many years ago, I saw this prayer, Act of Consecration to the Holy Spirit in a prayer book & loved it so much & made it one of my daily prayers. It wasn’t given any title in the book. Until now, I never knew I have been consecrating myself daily to the Holy Spirit! Wow! I’m so excited. Thank you Fr for revealing this to me through this Novena. I can now pray it more fervently & with much confidence.
