For the Gift of Chastity

O Lord, you manifested your love for us by creating us, by redeeming us, and by sanctifying us; and by sanctifying us; and you have called us to follow you in chaste lives; enkindle in out hearts such love for you, that we may faithfully live for you alone; and grant us the gift of true chastity in body and soul, that with your love we may need or desire nothing more; for you live and reign for ever and ever. Amen.

For the Spirit of Obedience

O God, by your grace you have called us to salvation through the cross of your Son, Jesus Christ, and to be faithful stewards of his mysteries: give us grace to obey his voice when he calls us to follow him; and grant that our wills and actions may be perfectly brought under his obedience, that we may always be ready to fulfill your holy will in all things, enduring the cross and despising the shame for the joy that is set before us; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

For the Gift of Conversion

O God, by your prophets and in your Son you have call countless souls in every generation to seek the way of holiness; gently show us day by day the path we are to follow in the footsteps of your Son, that our lives may ever be more and more closely conformed to his life, and that by holy living we may be faithful witnesses of your glory and love; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
