Novena in Preparation for Pentecost - Day 8
Second Friday after Ascension
“He is the Holy Spirit who will lead you into all truth”.
Holy Spirit and Breath of God, I rejoice in Your title as ‘Spirit of Truth’. You are the perfect antidote for the lie of original sin. Only the Truth will set me free, and You come to enable me walk and live in the Truth. O Spirit of Truth, I ask You, please, to flood my soul with Truth, so that all lies, deceits, and wrong perceptions may be washed away. Please free me from all wilful blindness, bigotry, and deception, so that I may walk the path of Truth in all that I do, and in all that I say.
Heavenly Father, I thank You for Your wonderful plan of salvation, brought about by Jesus, and completed by the Holy Spirit. Your Spirit is sent to lead us out of all kinds of slavery to pride, presumption, and denial. It is Your Spirit Who leads us back to the Garden, to reclaim the life of Truth and integrity that You created there. I accept the Gift of Your Spirit, because I need to hear the voice of Truth in the midst of all the other voices that surround me today.
Lord Jesus, I thank You for the completeness of Your Redemption that is offered me through the Gift of Your Spirit. If the Spirit of Truth were not given to lead me, then I could so easily fall back into deceit and lies. I trust Your Spirit to lead me into all truth. When that happens, I will see You as You are, and myself as I am. That will surely open my heart to the fullness of Your abundant life. I ask You, please, Lord Jesus, to ensure that your plans for me are brought to fulfilment.
Mary, my Mother, please pray that I receive the gift of Humility. This is Truth in practice, and it is something that was very central to your life. I entrust this special prayer to you. Thank you.
