A student prayer

Thank you, God, for giving me

a mind that can know

and a heart that can love.

Help me stay focused on my studies,

and encourage me when learning is difficult

that I may grasp the truth that is held out before me.

Grant me the grace to put my  knowledge to use

in building the kingdom of God on earth

that I may find the courage to follow your son, Jesus.

Amen.
