A powerful Prayer to the Holy Spirit

God the Holy Spirit,

third person of the blessed Trinity.

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 holy fear and love of God.

Grant me compunction and patience

and allow me not to fall into sin.

Give me an increase of faith, hope &

charity and bring forth in my soul

all the virtues proper to my state of life.

Give me Your four cardinal virtues,

Your seven gifts, and Your twelve fruits.

Make me a faithful follower of Jesus

and an obedient child of the church.

Give me the grace to keep the commandments

and to receive the sacraments worthily.

Raise me to perfection in the state of

life which You have called me.

And lead me to a happy death,

through Jesus Christ, O Lord.

Grant me also O Holy Spirit,

You who are the giver of all good gifts,

the special favor for which I ask…

(mention your request)

if it be for Your greater honor

and the good of my soul.

God bless,

Our Lady of Guadalupe,

According to your message to a native Juan Diego

I venerate you as “the Virgin Mother of the true God

for whom we live,

the Creator of all the world, the Maker of heaven and earth.”

In spirit I kneel before your most holy image

which you miraculously imprinted upon the cloak

of the Indian Juan Diego,

and with the faith of the countless numbers of pilgrims

who visit your shrine, I beg you for this favor:

(mention your request)

To be a generous, self-sacrificing, faithful devotee all the days of my life.

Remember, O Immaculate Virgin,

the words you spoke to your devout client,

“I am a merciful Mother to you and to all your people

who love me and trust in me and invoke my help.

I listen to their lamentations and solace

all their sorrows and their sufferings.”

I beg you to be a merciful Mother to me,

because I sincerely love you and trust in you

and I invoke your help.

I entreat you, Our Lady of Guadalupe,

to grant my request, if this should be the Will of God,

in order that I may

bear witness to your love, your compassion. Your help and protection.

Do not forsake me in my needs. Amen

Our Lady of Guadalupe, pray for us.

Novena to Our Mother of Perpetual Help

Miracle Novena (9 days)

O Mother of Perpetual Help, behold me a miserable sinner at thy feet; I have recourse to thee and put my trust in thee.
O Mother of Mercy have pity on me. I hear thee called by all the refuge and the hope of sinners, be then my refuge and my hope.
Help me for the love of Jesus Christ; stretch forth thy hand to me, who recommend and dedicate myself to thee as thy perpetual servant.
I bless and thank God for having in His mercy given to me this confidence in thee, the pledge as I believe of my eternal salvation. Alas! Too often in past times have miserably fallen, because I had not recourse to thee! I know that with thy help I shall conquer. I know that thou will help me if I recommend myself to thee; but I fear lest in the occasions of falling I should cease to call upon thee and so should lose my soul.
This, then, is the grace I seek from thee; and I implore thee, as far as I know how and can, to obtain it from me; namely (mention your request)
In the assaults of hell always to have recourse to thee and to say thee: O Mary help me; Mother of Perpetual Help, suffer me not to lose my God.

(Say 3 Hail Mary’s to obtain the special favors you seek)

Holy Mary, succor the miserable, help the faint hearted, cheer those that weep, pray for the people be the advocate of the clergy, intercede for all devout woman; let all feel thine aid who implore thy perpetual help.

V. Thou hast been for us, Our Lady of refuge.
R. A helper in needs and tribulation.

LET US PRAY
Oh Lord Jesus Christ, who has given us Thy most Blessed Mother, whose wondrous image we venerate, to be our Mother, ever ready to succor us, grant we beseech thee, that we, who earnestly implore her maternal aid, may deserve to enjoy perpetually the fruit of Thy eternal Redemption; who live and reigns, with God the Father, in the unity of the Holy Spirit; world without end. Amen.

 

The Memorare
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help or sought thine intercession was left unaided. Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my mother; to thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me.
Amen

Say this complete novena for 9 consecutive days with the faith of receiving the good grace of a miracle & promise to acknowledge this novena when your prayer petitions are answered. You can do so by posting in the comment section below. God bless.
