Praying to grow in virtue is a privilege we often overlook. The following prayers may be used as they are written—or you may use them as examples to write your own. Before you begin, take a moment to quietly ask the Holy Spirit to settle upon you, to be present in your heart and to help you understand how you are asked to live as a disciple of the King. Let the Holy Spirit bring this prayer to God in heaven.
