Litany Prayer for True Worship

O God,
you have commanded us to worship you in spirit and in truth.
Overshadow us with the power of your Holy Spirit.
Let your mercy and the gracious promise of your salvation come to us,
that our prayer may be directed to you by Christ,
through whom our sins are forgiven.
Hear us, O Lord. Amen.

For the Holy Spirit

Almighty God,
kindle our souls by your Spirit,
that being filled with your divine gifts,
we may shine like blazing lamps
in the presence of your Son Christ at his coming;
through the same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
