Day 5 

We pray for the Spirit s gift of courage.  With the gift of courage, we overcome our fear and are willing to take risks as a follower of Jesus Christ. A person with courage is willing to stand up for what is right in the sight of God, even if it means accepting rejection, verbal abuse, or even physical harm and death.

Come to the Church and give us courage, that we may look to the future not with fear, but with joy and hope, we pray: come, Holy Spirit!
 
Come to this Archdiocese of Seattle as we await the appointment of a new Archbishop, that our new leader may have courage to preach the Gospel in the midst of daunting challenges, we pray: come, Holy Spirit!
 
Come to those who suffer for what they believe, and give them courage to endure, we pray: come, Holy Spirit!
 
Come upon all of us, and grant us the courage to live our faith in our daily lives, we pray: come, Holy Spirit!

Novena Prayer

Come, Holy Spirit!
Come to the Church in our time of need:
Heal, cleanse, and renew us.
Raise up for us prophetic leaders,
humble, compassionate shepherds,
with wisdom to read the signs of the times
in the light of the Gospel.
Come to our world,
and teach us to reverence the earth
and all of creation.
Come to our hearts,
and fill us with your gifts,
that we may live the faith we profess
and commit ourselves anew
to the Gospel of Christ.
Come, Holy Spirit,
with the wind and fire
of a new Pentecost.
 
Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful,
and kindle in them the fire of your love.
You send forth your Spirit, and they are created:
and you will renew the face of the earth.
