Prayer to be filled with the Holy Spirit

Come Holy Spirit,
Come with Boldness,
Come through the arms of Mary.

Come, Spirit, with beauty and newness.

Rise in me. Shine in me.
Teach me to lose control, to let go of my own ideals and expectations.
Give me, instead, openness to your tender love and wisdom.
Heal the parts within me that are dead, and renew my mind.

Come drench me in love. You are the spirit that conceived Jesus in the womb of Mary, the spirit who rose Jesus from death, come rise up in me and dwell within me, with this same power.
