Sacrament of Confirmation 

All powerful God, Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
by water and the Holy Spirit
you freed your sons and daughters from sin
And gave them new life.
Send your Holy Spirit upon them
to be their helper and guide.
Give them the spirit of [1] wisdom and [2] understanding,
the spirit of [3] right judgment and [4] courage,
the spirit of [5] knowledge and [6] reverence.
Fill them with the spirit of [7] wonder and awe in your presence.

by the Divine Power of God —

cast into hell Satan and all the evil spirits

who roam throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls.

O mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in your mercy, hear and answer me. Amen!
