Prayers

Beginning on the medal, pray:

Holy Spirit, divine Consoler,        I adore You as my true God, with God the Father and God the Son.        I adore You and unite myself to the adoration You receive from the angels and saints.    I give You my heart and I offer my ardent thanksgiving for all the grace which You never cease to bestow on me.  
O Giver of all supernatural gifts, who filled the soul of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of God, with such immense favors, I beg You to visit me with Your grace and Your love and to grant me your gifts.
Amen.

On each of the large beads, consider a gift of the Holy Spirit (below).  
On the small beads, pray Our Father, Hail Mary, and Gloria.

The Seven Gifts of the Holy Spirit

  1. Grant me the gift of holy fear , so that it may act on me as a check to prevent me from falling back into my past sins, for which I beg pardon.  
    Our Father, Hail Mary, and Gloria

  2. Grant me the gift of piety , so that I may serve You for the future with increased fervor, follow with more promptness Your holy inspirations, and observe your divine precepts with greater fidelity.  
    Our Father, Hail Mary, and Gloria

  3. Grant me the gift of knowledge , so that I may know the things of God and, enlightened by Your holy teaching, may walk, without deviation, in the path of eternal salvation.  
    Our Father, Hail Mary, and Gloria

  4. Grant me the gift of fortitude , so that I may overcome courageously all the assaults of the devil, and all the dangers of this world which threaten the salvation of my soul.  
    Our Father, Hail Mary, and Gloria

  5. Grant me the gift of counsel , so that I may choose what is more conducive to my spiritual advancement and may discover the wiles and snares of the tempter.
    Our Father, Hail Mary, and Gloria

  6. Grant me the gift of understanding , so that I may apprehend the divine mysteries and by contemplation of heavenly things detach my thoughts and affections from the vain things of this miserable world.  
    Our Father, Hail Mary, and Gloria

  7. Grant me the gift of wisdom , so that I may rightly direct all my actions, referring them to God as my last end; so that, having loved Him and served Him in this life, I may have the happiness of possessing Him eternally in the next.  
    Our Father, Hail Mary, and Gloria

Amen.

Prayer to the Holy Spirit in Every Need

Come, Holy Spirit --- my Light, my Life, my Love, my Strength.
Be with me now and always: in all my doubts, anxieties, and trials.
Come, Holy Spirit; in hours of loneliness, weariness and grief.
Come, Holy Spirit; in failure, in loss and in disappointment.
Come, Holy Spirit; when others fail me, when I fail myself.
Come, Holy Spirit; when I am ill, unable to work, depressed.
Come, Holy Spirit; now and forever, and in all things.
Come, Holy Spirit; come.
