Prayer to the
Holy Spirit
by St. Therese of Lisieux

Breathe in me, O Holy Spirit,

that my thoughts may all be holy.

 

Act in me, O Holy Spirit,

that my work, too, may be holy.

 

Draw my heart, O Holy Spirit,

that I love but what is holy.

 

Strengthen me, O Holy Spirit,

to defend all that is holy.

 

Guard me, then, O Holy Spirit,

that I always may be holy.

 

Amen.
