*The following Invocation could be said every day or upon needs and in times of difficulties and temptations.
INVOCATION TO GOD, THE FATHER, TO SEND HIS HOLY SPIRIT
O God, Our Heavenly Father, you are the Father of Divine Mercies and the Source of every comfort, you, who on the ninth day after the Ascension of Our
Risen Lord into Heaven, accomplished your promise to us according to the word of your Son, and sent upon us your Holy Spirit of Divine Mercy and of comfort. He appeared to the apostles and to Mary, the Mother of Divine Mercy, like tongues of fire, which parted and came to rest on each of them. As they were filled with the Holy Spirit, they were able to proclaim your Good News of Salvation to the whole world, and the Church was born.
I (We) ask you to send your Holy Spirit now upon us and upon those for whom we pray at this hour.
Let your Holy Spirit of Mercies descend upon us and cast away from our midst every evil spirit, every disease, every fear, every evil passion and desire, every
temptation, every division, conflict and dissention, every inclination to sin and sadness, every ill will to wage war and to dwell in darkness.
May Your Holy Spirit, descend now upon us and upon those for whom we pray and confirm us in the Spirit of Unity,
In the Spirit of Faith, Hope and Love, In the Spirit of Divine Mercy and of Divine Talents, In the Spirit of Pardon, Peace, Joy and Reconciliation, In The Spirit of the Righteous and Just of Old, In the Spirit of your Mother the Virgin Mary, Mother of Divine Mercy and the Apostles who proclaimed your Good News to the world.
We ask you this, O Heavenly Father, for your glory, for the pardon of mankind, for the renewal of the Holy Church and for the confirmation of the faith, and for the salvation and peace of the entire world in and through Christ Jesus, your Son.
