In this post you’ll learn a miracle prayer to the Holy Spirit. It is often called the Come Holy Spirit prayer.
When I first read this prayer something magical happened. I was immediately overwhelmed with God’s love and received the light of the Holy Spirit.
My hope is that sharing this prayer will bring you closer to God as well.
Read to learn a prayer to the Holy Spirit?
Let’s get started.
Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of Thy faithful and enkindle in them the fire of Thy love. Send forth Thy Spirit and they shall be created. And Thou shalt renew the face of the earth. Let us pray. O God, Who didst instruct the hearts of the faithful by the light of the Holy Spirit, grant us in the same Spirit to be truly wise, and ever to rejoice in His consolation. Through Christ, our Lord. Amen.
The Holy Spirit is part of the Holy Trinity which includes:
This concept of the Holy Trinity confuses many people and there is much debate as to what the Holy Spirit represents in the Bible.
My goal is to help you receive the Holy Spirit through prayer and not overwhelm you with Biblical history. So, I’m going to simplify this as best I can.
From my studies I believe the Holy Spirit represents God’s wisdom. In John 15:26 (NIV) Jesus says “When the Advocate comes, whom I will send to you from the Father—the Spirit of truth who goes out from the Father…”
In this case, I believe the Advocate is the Holy Spirit which is sent from the Father and is a “Spirit of truth” or wisdom.
So, when you pray to receive an outpouring of the Holy Spirit you are asking God to fill you with the “light” or wisdom of the Spirit.
I don’t think there is a more powerful prayer than one that asks God to share His wisdom with us.
I’ve included the St. Augustine’s prayer to the Holy Spirit as a bonus for anyone looking to expand their faith. If you have been searching for other ways to receive the Holy Spirit, this prayer is a great place to start. Consider adding this prayer to your morning or evening routine.
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. Guard me, then, O Holy Spirit, that I always may be holy. Amen.
And now I’d like to hear from you.
