Prayer for Perseverance

Come Holy Ghost, enlighten my mind, that I may know what is right;
strengthen my will, that I may do what is right;
inflame my heart with love for God and charity toward my neighbor.

Ant. Come, O Holy Ghost, fill the hearts of Thy faithful, and kindle in them the fire of Thy love.
V. Send forth Thy Spirit, and they shall be created.
R. And Thou shalt renew the face of the earth.
Let us pray: O God, Who didst instruct the hearts of Thy faithful by the light of the Holy Ghost, grant us by that
same Spirit to be truly wise and ever to rejoice in His consolations, through Christ Our Lord. Amen.
