Blessed Spirit of Understanding, enlighten my mind, that I may know and love the truths of faith and make them truly my own.
Blessed Spirit of Counsel, enlighten and guide me in all my ways, that I may always know and do Your Holy Will. Make me prudent and courageous.
Blessed Spirit of Fortitude, uphold my soul in every time of trouble or adversity. Make me loyal and confident.
Blessed Spirit of Knowledge, help me to know good from evil. Teach me to do what is right in the spirit of God. Give me clear vision and firmness in decision.
Blessed Spirit of Piety, possess my heart, incline it to a true faith in You, to a holy love of You, my God, that with my whole soul I may seek You, who are my Father and Mother, and find You, my best, my truest joy.
Blessed Spirit of Holy Love, penetrate my inmost heart that I may ever be mindful of Your presence. Make me fly from sin, and give me intense reverence for God and for my fellow beings who are made in God's image.
This is a prayer that I copied down when I was 17, during an ecstatic period.
