A Prayer of Teachers
Lord Jesus Christ, imbue me with the knowledge of both secular and religious
subjects that is necessary to my task on earth. Let me be equipped with
suitable qualifications and also with a pedagogical skill that is in harmony
with the discoveries of the contemporary world.
I want to teach my students how to live this life on earth,
Prayer for Students
Eternal Father, through the Gifts and Fruits of Your Holy Spirit, enlighten and perfect my intellect, will and affections that in all things I may be what Your Divine Wisdom intended me to be, a bearer of Christ to all. Illuminate my intellect with faith; strengthen my will with hope; and inflame my heart with Your Divine Love. Create in me Christlike ideals, attitudes, appreciations, and habits that will enable me to think, judge, and act so as to be like Your Immaculate Mother, a bearer of Christ to all.
Give me the necessary skills to earn an honest living; justice to regulate my will in respecting the rights of others; temperance to control my desires; and fortitude to defend and practice Your Way, Your Truth, and Your Life, thus being like St. Joseph, a bearer of Christ to all. Teach me to be modest in regard to myself and others; to be joyfully respectful and obedient to my parents, teachers, ecclesiastical and civil authorities. Thus, by Your Grace, will I grow in the stature of Christ, in wisdom and age, and be a bearer of Him to all.
Most Holy Trinity, make me realize that I cannot live without the life of grace that comes through frequent reception of the sacraments, through my offering with the Priest of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, through my daily prayers and through sacrifices on my part. Only through Your grace will I put on the image of Christ so that through Him, with Him, and in Him, I shall advance the Peace of Christ to all my brothers and sisters. Amen.
