Traditional Prayers for Anglican Catholics

For the Help of the Holy Spirit

O God,
send forth thy Holy Spirit into my heart that I may perceive;
into my mind that I may remember;
and into my soul that I may meditate.
Inspire me to speak with piety, holiness, tenderness and mercy.
Teach, guide and direct my thoughts and senses from beginning to end.
May thy grace ever help and correct me,
and may I be strengthened now with wisdom from on high,
for the sake of thine infinite mercy. Amen.

St Anthony of Padua (1195-1231)
