Traditional Prayers for Anglican Catholics

For those Preparing to be Confirmed

O God,
who through the teaching of thy Son Jesus Christ
didst prepare the disciples
for the coming of the Comforter;
Make ready, we beseech thee,
the hearts and minds of thy servants
who at this time are seeking to be strengthened
by the gift of the Holy Spirit
through the laying on of hands,
that, drawing near with penitent and faithful hearts,
they may evermore be filled
with the power of his divine indwelling;
through the same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
