Prayer to Holy Spirit by St. Cyprian

O Holy Spirit, be present,
and from heaven shed down your consolation
 on those that expect you;
sanctify the temple of my body,
and consecrate it as a dwelling place for yourself.
Make the souls that desire you joyful with your presence.
Make the house fit for you, the Inhabitant:
adorn your chamber and surround the place of your rest with all virtues;
expel whatever is unholy and the spring of corruption;
and make this joy permanent and lasting:
continuing the renewal of your creature forever
in unfading beauty.

Amen.
