A Prayer for the Spirit’s Intercession

antifonariodelec3b3n1Lord Jesus Christ,
you are faithful in all your words
and holy in all your works.
We do not know what we ought to pray for. 
Grant that your Spirit may intercede for us,
sanctify us with his gifts here,
and crown us with blessedness
in the life to come;
through your mercy, O God,
blessed forevermore.
Amen.
