Make This Prayer to the Holy Spirit Before Confession

Make This Prayer to the Holy Spirit Before Confession

Here is a prayer to the Holy Spirit before receiving the Sacrament of Reconciliation or Penance. Let us ask God to give us the strength to always make a good confession.

Come, Holy Spirit, into my soul. Enlighten my mind that I may know the sins I ought to confess, and grant me the grace to confess them fully, humbly, and with a contrite heart. Help me to firmly resolve not to commit them again.

O Blessed Virgin, Mother of my Redeemer, mirror of innocence and sanctity and refuge of penitent sinners, intercede for me that I may obtain the grace to make a good confession.

All you blessed Angels and Saints of God, pray for me, a sinner, that I may repent from my sinful ways and that I may be forever united with you. Amen.

Our Father

Our Father, Who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy name; Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.

 

Hail Mary

Hail Mary full of Grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed are thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb Jesus. Holy Mary Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death Amen.

Glory Be

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. Amen.

2018 Breakthrough Prayer Every Catholic Must Say NOW

2018 Breakthrough Prayer Every Catholic Must Say NOW

Breakthrough! It speaks of overcoming an obstacle that is in our way—or of prevailing over a need, a restriction or an opposing enemy. Breakthrough can also mean an achievement or discovery that leads to significant progress.

When we need a breakthrough in our lives or ministry, we turn to prayer. But what kind of prayer will it take?
The Bible teaches us keys to prayer through the stories of real people who prayed and how God answered them

6 Biblical Keys to Breakthrough Prayer

1. Seek God’s Agenda First

This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him.’ (1 John 5:14-15)

Daniel was a godly man who read the scriptures—including the prophecies of Jeremiah. He recognised that Jeremiah prophesied about the times that Daniel was now living in and began to seek God for the answers. He knew it was time to birth that prophecy in prayer.

We need to know that we are praying God’s purpose for our lives. This means firstly praying according to God’s revealed will in the Scripture. Upon that foundation, we can also seek an intimate relationship with Father God in which we can hear His purpose for our lives and situation—and pray out of that

2. Don’t Settle for Second Best

Hannah was childless, and it grieved her. Wanting to reassure her, Hannah’s husband offered his love and personal gifts, thinking these could please her. But Hannah would only be satisfied with one thing—a baby. As a result of Hannah’s prayer, a future prophet and priest was born. Samuel would bring the nation back to God. (1 Sam 1)

When God has placed something in our hearts, then like Hannah we will be tempted to settle for the ‘status quo’ or second best. But that is the very time to passionately press into God for the answer.

3. Pray from the Heart

Hannah cried a wordless prayer of deep groaning—and God answered it. (1 Sam 1:12-16, Rom 8:26-27)) Nehemiah shot up a prayer whilst he was going about his daily occupation. (Neh 2:1-5) These seemingly simple prayers, carried from the heart, changed nations.

There are no right and wrong ways to pray. Just real prayers.

It’s time to put aside formulas, and not to be intimidated by someone else’s style and eloquence. The prayers that God answers are real prayers from the heart, regardless of time, place or technique.

4. Pray with Praise and Thanksgiving

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. (Phil 4:6)

Paul and Silas were in a difficult situation. God called them to evangelize a city, but they were stuck in a dungeon, held in stocks. As they prayed in the night and offered up hymns of praise, God sent an earthquake to open the prison doors. (Acts 16:22-29)

When used in addition to prayer, praise is a powerful cutting-edge weapon for a breakthrough. (Ps 149:6-9)

5. Don’t Give Up

Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up. (Luke 18:1)

Daniel prayed and fasted for 21 days before an answer came. An angel appeared who had been battling in the heavenlies for the entire time Daniel had been in prayer. Daniel’s persistent prayers provided fuel for what God was doing on his behalf. (Dan 10)

Prayer is not a single event, but a process. Whilst continuing in prayer, we are partnering with God as Heaven’s resources, including angels, are being released that are working towards God’s answer.
Don’t give up too soon!

6. Find Others who will Agree with You

Jesus said, “…if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.” (Matt 18:19-20)

Esther is known as a woman whose courage saved a nation. However, prior to approaching the King, Esther called on Mordecai, all the Jews of the city, and her own attendants, to fast before God for 3 days. Esther knew that the real power lay in God answering the prayer of those who had joined her in the fast. (Esther 4:16)

When in need of a breakthrough, find others who will join you in prayer, because there is multiplied power in agreement.

Never Forget This Prayer Of St. Michael The Archangel

Never Forget This Prayer Of St. Michael The Archangel

Although it is no longer recited at the end of the Masses, as was the case in the past, prayer to St. Michael the Archangel remains a powerful aid “in the battle against the forces of darkness and against the spirit of this world”

After receiving a terrible vision of devilish forces about to be released on Earth in 1884, Pope Leo XIII wrote his own prayer to St. Michael, ordering it to be recited immediately after all the Masses prayed in the Latin rite. Prayer to the Archangel became part of the so-called “leonine prayers,” which were left aside by the liturgical reform of the 1960s.

In 1994, however, Pope John Paul II noted the absence of this prayer and asked that it be recited again by the faithful. It was on April 24 , at the Vatican, after the traditional prayer of the Regina Caeli :

“May prayer strengthen us for that spiritual battle which the Letter to the Ephesians says: ‘Strengthen yourselves in the Lord and in the power of his virtue’ ( Eph 6:10 ). It is to this same battle that the Book of Revelation refers, putting before our eyes the image of St. Michael the Archangel (see Rev 12, 7). Pope Leo XIII was certainly present before this scene when, at the end of the last century, he introduced a special prayer to the whole of the Church to St. Michael: “St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in the fight against wickedness and traps of the devil … ‘

Although today this prayer is no longer recited at the end of the Eucharistic celebration, I invite everyone not to forget it, but to recite it for help in the battle against the forces of darkness and against the spirit of this world.”

Curiously, a decade after this prayer was no longer recited in the parishes after the Masses, Blessed Pope Paul VI recognized with regret the victories that Satan and his forces were obtained over the Church. In a homily on June 29, 1972 , he warned:

By some breach, the smoke of Satan entered the temple of God . There is doubt, uncertainty, problematic, restlessness, confrontation. There is no more trust in the Church; trust is placed in the first profane prophet who comes to us in a newspaper or in some social movement, to turn to him and ask him if he has the formula of true life. And we do not notice, instead, that we are already masters and masters [of that formula]. Doubts entered our consciousness and entered through the windows that were to be opened to light instead.

[…]

This state of uncertainty reigns in the Church. It was believed that, after the Council, there would be a sunny day for the history of the Church. Instead, there came a day of clouds, of storm, of darkness, of search, of uncertainty. We preach ecumenism, and we distance ourselves more and more from others. We try to dig up chasms instead of grounding them. How did this happen? We entrust to you our Thought: there was the intervention of an adverse power. Your name is the devil.”

The prayer to Saint Michael was composed by Pope Leo XIII on October 13, 1884, exactly 33 years before the Miracle of the Sun at Fatima. Here is the original Latin version of the prayer and its Portuguese translation:

Sancte Michael Archangele, defend us in proelio, against nequitiam et insidias diaboli this praesidium. Imperet illi Deus, supplices deprecamur: tuque, Princeps militiae caelestis, Satan aliosque spiritus malignos, qui ad perditionem animarum pervagantur in world, divine virtue, in infernum detrude. Amen.

St. Michael, the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray; and do you, O Prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God cast into hell Satan and all the evil spirits who wander through the world seeking the ruin of souls.
Amen.
