Pentecost Novena

For those who are led by the Spirit of God are children of God. For you did not receive a spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you received a spirit of adoption, through which we cry, "Abba, Father!"The Spirit itself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs, heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if only we suffer with him so that we may also be glorified with him. (Romans 8:14-17).

Prayer for Inner Healing (Bl. James Alberione)

Holy Spirit, through the intercession of the Queen of Pentecost:

Heal my mind of lack of reflection, ignorance, forgetfulness, stubbornness, prejudice and error, and form Wisdom, Jesus Christ-Truth in everything.
Heal my heart of indifference, negativity, sinful inclinations, untrammeled emotionalism, unhealthy attachments, and form in me the feelings and inclinations of Jesus Christ-Life in all things.
Heal my will of lack of will power, arbitrariness, sloth and bad habits, and form Jesus Chrsit-Way in me, with a new love for whatever Jesus Christ loves, and for Jesus Christ himself.

Uplift in a godlike way
intelligence with the gift of understanding,
wisdom with the gift of wisdom,
knowledge with the gift of knowledge,
prudence with the gift of counsel,
justice with the gift of piety,
strength with the gift of fortitude,
temperance with the gift of fear of the Lord.
Amen.
