Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
who brought these your servants to new birth
by water and the Holy Spirit, freeing them from sin:
send upon them, O Lord,
the Holy Spirit, the Paraclete;
give them the spirit of wisdom and understanding,
the spirit of counsel and fortitude,
the spirit of knowledge and piety;
fill them with the spirit of the fear of the Lord.
Through Christ our Lord. Amen.”
