Let us prepare ourselves in prayer for the start of 40 Days for Life (in 2 days!), asking the Holy Spirit to inspire and strengthen us!
Let us pray,
Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of Your faithful and enkindle in them the fire of Your love. Send forth Your Spirit and they shall be created. And You shall renew the face of the earth.
Bend the stubborn heart and will, melt the frozen warm the chill. Guide the steps that go astray!
Come, O Spirit of Wisdom, reveal to my soul the mysteries of heavenly things, their exceeding greatness, power and beauty. Teach me to love them above and beyond all the passing joys and satisfactions of earth. Help me to attain them and posess them for ever. Amen.
