Day 9 

We conclude our novena by praying for all the gifts of the Holy Spirit.

Come to the Church, and fill us with your gifts of wisdom and understanding, right judgment and courage, knowledge and reverence, wonder and awe in God s presence.  We pray:  come, Holy Spirit!
 
Come to our world, and renew the face of the earth.  We pray: come, Holy Spirit!
 
Come to all the afflicted, and let them feel your presence in the love of others.  We pray:  come, Holy Spirit!
 
Come to all of us, and teach us to persevere in prayer, waiting the outpouring of your gifts in patience and hope: 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.
