Prayer for Holy Spirit

Dear God,

We pray for Your Holy Spirit to come and fill us with Your presence. We humbly ask that You would empower us with Your presence and help us to live a life that is pleasing to You.

We pray that the Holy Spirit would give us wisdom and understanding, and that we would be able to discern Your truth. May the gifts of the Holy Spirit be evident in us, and may we use them to serve You and others.

We ask that the Holy Spirit would give us the courage to share the good news of Jesus with those around us, and to be a light in this dark world. Help us to be obedient to Your Word and to follow Your will for our lives.

We pray all of this in the precious name of Jesus, Amen.
