You can Pray in Color with the illustration on pg. 30 of your Small Catechism.
You may also conclude your study in these or similar words:
Holy Spirit, Giver of Life, stir up in me the gift of your Holy Spirit: the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of the knowledge and the fear of the Lord, the spirit of joy in your presence, both now and forever. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen. (Luther’s Small Catechism: Study Edition pg. 78)
