Prayer for the help of the Holy Spirit   

O God, send forth your Holy Spirit

into my heart that I may perceive,
into my mind that I may remember,
and into my soul that I may meditate.

Inspire me to speak with piety,
holiness, tenderness and mercy.
Teach, guide and direct my thoughts and senses
from beginning to end.

May your grace ever help and correct me,
and may I be strengthened
now with wisdom from on high,
for the sake of your infinite mercy. Amen.

                                           Saint Anthony of Padua
