One of the most well-known prayers to the Holy Spirit, "Come Holy Spirit" is a good daily prayer to recite privately or with your family. If prayed with others, the leader should recite the verse ("Send forth . . . "), and the others should reply with the response ("And You shall renew . . . ").

Come Holy Spirit

Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful and kindle in them the fire of your love.
V. Send forth your Spirit, and they shall be created.
R. And You shall renew the face of the earth.

Let us pray.

O, God, who by the light of the Holy Spirit, did instruct the hearts of the faithful, grant that by the same Holy Spirit we may be truly wise and ever enjoy His consolations. Through Christ Our Lord. Amen.
