Lord, I dedicate to You the spiritual gifts and graces that You have bestowed upon me. I give everything I am to You, and I ask that You will use me in a ‘body ministry' to other saints, so that I can minister to my brothers and sisters in whatever way You see fit. May we all be mutually edified and encouraged, and may Your name be glorified.

Fill me with the Holy Spirit, I pray, and let my life be a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable in Your sight. I pray that You will use me to spread the gospel of grace for whatever reason You choose. In the name of Jesus, I beg.

What is the greatest spiritual gift?

Wisdom is regarded as the earliest and most important of the gifts. It affects the intellect as well as the will. It both illumines the mind and instills an inclination to the divine, according to St. Bernard. “The latter is a view taken by the mind, while the former is an experience undergone by the heart; one is light, the other love, and so they connect and complete one another,” Adolphe Tanquerey OP defined the distinction between wisdom and understanding. The theological virtue of charity is perfected by a wise and compassionate heart.
