Holy Father, Your word tells me that if I seek You, I will find You if I look for You with all my heart and with all my soul. I have sought You with all my heart and I know that I must confirm my faith to You because You are my God. Thank You for being merciful. I know that You will not abandon or destroy me or forget the covenant with my forefathers. Thank You, Lord, for being faithful to me, uphold me as I complete this act of faith to You, Amen.
Breathe in me, O Holy Spirit,
that my thoughts may all be holy.
Act in me, O Holy Spirit,
that my work too may be holy.
Draw my heart, O Holy Spirit,
that I love but what is holy.
Strengthen me, O Holy Spirit,
to defend all that is holy.
Guide me then, O Holy Spirit,
that I always may be holy.
Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful,
kindle in them the fire of your love.
Send forth your Spirit and they shall be created.
And you will renew the face of the earth. Amen.
My God, I love you above all things, with my whole heart and soul,
because you are all good and worthy of all my love. I love my neighbor
as myself for the love of you. I forgive all who have injured me and
I ask pardon of all whom I have injured. Amen.

God of all ages, You send out your Spirit to touch the hearts of people
so that they may believe in you and in Jesus, whom You sent.
Loving, gracious God, send your Holy Spirit upon me.
Make me an instrument of your love.
Make me more aware of the many ways of Your presence.
Teach me to reverence what is holy in others,
and to be patient with what I do not understand.
Deepen my faith in the gospel, and help me to pass it on by good example.
With those who are hesitant or afraid,
let me be a source of encouragement.
And with those who are weak, let me be a pillar of strength.

Our mouths to always speak our feelings, our reflections;
Our hands to reach out to others;
Our hearts to grow closer to you and all in Your family.
Lord, send Your Holy Spirit and renew the face of the earth.
I praise you through Christ our Lord. Amen
