Prayer for a New Pope (plus a free printable!)

I was looking for a simple prayer that my family could say during the next month; a prayer that would ask the Holy Spirit to guide the College of Cardinals when selecting a new pope.
I love this Come Holy Spirit prayer, suggested by Relevant Radio's  from Father Rocky: 

Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your
faithful and kindle in them the fire of your love Send forth your
Spirit, and they shall be created And You shall renew the face of the
earth. Let us pray.
O, God, who by the light of the Holy
Spirit, did instruct the hearts of the faithful, grant that by the same
Holy Spirit we may be truly wise and ever enjoy His consolations.
Through Christ Our Lord. 

Decided to quick turn it into a table tent, to help us remember to pray it during the meals. Here are a couple of photos of it:

Would you like to use this table tent, too?  If so, I've uploaded it to Google docs; it's available for free.  Please go here to get it.
