Novena in Preparation for Pentecost - Day 9
Saturday, Eve of Pentecost
“From now on the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things, and remind you of all that I have told you.”
Holy Spirit and Breath of God, I welcome You as my Helper. I need You to teach me and to remind me, and this is something that I pray will happen afresh with each new day. I depend TOTALLY on You to inspire and enlighten me when it comes to the message and the promises of the gospels. I know that I am in good hands, with You as my Teacher, and I want to do everything I can to co-operate with you in this. Please free my heart from everything that would distract me from Your whispers.
Heavenly Father, it is in Jesus’ name that I ask You to continue to pour out Your Spirit into my heart. I ask for a whole New Pentecost of Love and Understanding. Please baptise me in Your Spirit, so that, like Jesus coming up out of the Jordan waters, I may go forth with courage and enthusiasm to spread the Good News of Your Love.
Lord Jesus, I so much want to know You more and more, and to remember all the many things You have told me. All I can do is open my heart and my hands, and declare my willingness to receive, and to accept with gratitude, the wonderful Gift that is offered at this time. Please roll away the stone, and throw open the doors of my heart, that I may come forth into a life that is lived in the power of Your Spirit.
Mary my Mother, please stay very close to me, so that I may be focussed on the Gift that is Pentecost. Please make up what you see is lacking in me, so that I may be as ready as I can when the tongues of fire descend.
