John 14: 15-17

And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, to be with you forever, even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, for he dwells with you and will be in you. – John 14:15-17

O God, you are an Awesome God. You look out for each creation you have created out of the depths of your love. You formed us in the likeness of the Trinity, Father, along with the Son and Holy Spirit, Who were with you and in you, at the beginning of creation. Father, because of your infinite benevolence towards man, you sent your beloved Son Jesus, your Word made flesh, the second person of the Triune Godhead, to atone for our offenses.

Jesus revealed to his disciples the truth about his Father, and of the Heavenly Kingdom, and empowered them to spread by evangelization, the good news of your gospel of truth. His mission of love renewed the faith of your anointed, chosen people. As promised by Jesus before his crucifixion, you gave us the Holy Spirit, after Jesus’ Ascension, as guide and counselor to be with us till the end of time. The Holy Spirit has been received by each and every believer, who is a follower of Christ and has adopted his faith, living by the precepts of your Word and covenant with us.

We earnestly pray, dear Heavenly Father, that your Spirit of truth, indwelling in the hearts of all believers, guiding them to follow your Holy Will in perfect and pure obedience, leads us to your heavenly throne, where we can gaze on your beatific countenance eternally. Jesus has restored us to you, by his death and resurrection. May we, by living and professing our Christian faith, by our exemplary lives, abiding in Christ and by the gifts of your Holy Spirit, draw souls, in multitudes, into the circle of your love, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
