O, my Divine Master, teach me how to
learn wisely and well
Help me to master the subjects I need to Study.
Make me strong against temptations,
Resolute before distraction
Humble before the truth, and
Gracious to the less gifted
Teach me to use my opportunities gratefully
Develop my talents responsibly.
And place my learning
At the service of Truth and Justice.
Make me wise and strong, that I may
learn from life itself,
consider everyone as my teacher
and never turn away from the light of your face. Amen
Give us Divine Master,
a sincere love for our students.
We accept each student from Your hands
Give us the strength to admit our limitations,
the courage to start each day with hope,
and the patience and humour we need in teaching.
May we impart knowledge humbly,
Listen attentively, Collaborate willingly,
and seek the lasting good of those we teach.
We seek Your blessing as we start yet another day.
We ask You to bless us and our students
And our dreams and hopes. Amen.
