Have you lost your zeal for Christ? Pray this prayer to the Holy Spirit

HAND PRAYER

Mercy McNab | Aleteia

Philip Kosloski - published on 08/09/18

Call upon the Holy Spirit to increase your love of God.

For many of us, we catch on fire with God’s love after a grace-filled conversion, but then after years of living in the world, our heart grows cold.

What should we do?

The Holy Spirit is the one who can fill our heart with zeal, and the following prayer is one that has been used time and time again over the centuries. It was developed from the liturgy at Pentecost and is a favorite prayer of many people.

If you need a good holy “jolt,” pray this prayer and entrust your heart to the Holy Spirit.

Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful.And kindle in them the fire of your love.Send forth your Spirit and they shall be created.And you will renew the face of the earth.Lord,by the light of the Holy Spirityou have taught the hearts of your faithful.In the same Spirithelp us to relish what is rightand always rejoice in your consolation.We ask this through Christ our Lord.Amen.
