Novena to the Holy Spirit in Catholic Tradition

Day 2 (26-12-17)
Success in Creative Writing and Travel the World
Holy Spirit, from my youth I dreamt to become a creative writer and travel the world but success has alluded me. Now as a last attempt, I most humbly pray to you to give me success in my creative writing work and help me to travel the world. I realize with your blessings I will soon become a published author with my books sold throughout the world in various languages and at the same time will be able to travel the world. I also most humbly pray to you to free me from my present poverty and make it possible for me to have a house of my own to carry on freely my writing work and spiritual activities. Do me the favor of giving me all that I need to accomplish my mission in life and I shall always be your sincere devotee, praising and glorifying your name at every moment of day and night.
Holy Spirit, I pray to redeem the time I lost for all these years. I most humbly pray to help me by giving twenty five years more of active life with good health to accomplish my mission of glorifying our Heavenly Father and all his Saints.
O Holy Spirit, source of all mercy, I acknowledge thy sovereign power, while recalling the wasted years that are past. I believe that Thou, Lord, can in an instant turn their loss to gain. Miserable as I am, yet I firmly believe that thou can do all things. Please restore to me the time lost, giving me thy grace, both now and the future, that I may appear before Thee in wedding garments. Amen.
Thank you, Holy Spirit.
