Recite the following prayer for nine days…
O Holy Spirit,
You are the Third Person of the Blessed Trinity!
You are the Spirit of truth,
love, and holiness,
proceeding from the Father and the Son,
and equal to Them in all things!
I adore You and love You with all my heart.
Teach me to know and to seek God,
by Whom and for Whom I was created.
Fill my heart with a holy fear
and a great love of Him.
Give me compunction and patience,
and do not let me fall into sin.
Increase faith, hope, and charity in me
and bring forth in me all the virtues
proper to my state of life.
Help me to grow in the four cardinal virtues,
Your seven gifts,
and Your twelve fruit.
Make me a faithful follower of Jesus,
an obedient child of the Church,
and a help to my neighbor.
Give me the grace to keep the commandments
and to receive the sacraments worthily.
Raise me to holiness in the state of life
to which You have called me,
and lead me through a happy death to everlasting life.
Through Jesus Christ, our Lord.
Grant me also, O Holy Spirit,
Giver of all good gifts,
the special favor for which I ask…
(State your request here…)
if it be for Your honor
and glory and for my well-being.
Glory be to the Father,
and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit,
as it was in the beginning,
is now, and ever shall be,
world without end.
