PRAYER TO THE HOLY SPIRIT. Holy Spirit, you who makes me see everything and shows me the way to reach my ideals. You, who gives me the divine gifts to forgive and forget all that is done to me. You, who are in all the instincts of my life. I, in this short dialogue, want to thank you for everything and affirm once more that I never want to be separated from you, no matter how great the material desires. To that end, and submitting to God’s will, I ask from you (whatever your request is). Say this prayer for 3 days. After the 3rd day, the request will be granted, no matter how difficult. Promising to publish the entire dialogue is a condition of granting your request.
