Father of Light and Wisdom,
thank you for giving me
a mind that can know
and a heart that can love.

Help me to keep learning every day of my life-- no matter what the subject may be.
Let me be convinced that all knowledge leads to you and let me know how to find you and love you in all the things you have made.

Encourage me when the studies are difficult and when I am tempted to give up Enlighten me when my brain is slow and help me to grasp the truth held out to me.

Grant me the grace to put my knowledge to use in building the kingdom of God on earth so that I may enter the kingdom of God in heaven.
Amen.

O Lord,
When I enter the school
Give me those virtues that will make me an effective educator.
Give me Wisdom beyond knowledge, not merely to know the facts I have prepared, but to see their importance in the live of those I teach.

Give me that Wisdom which will prevail in the face of indifference, for children come with no deep interest in You.

I must create this interest. 
Give me Your kindness, which lived on in the face of rejection and disinterest:
to see, behind the mask, the lonesome soul.

Give me Your Patience, which was not disappointed by 
To teach You, I must imitate You
Who worked in the tough soil of the human will.

Give me your Humility, to lead others to You,
As You led others to Your Father.
Since I can give no grace, never let me promote myself.

Give me Insight to appreciate that I am the adult,
that these children have neither my control or desire
Then add a spirit of kindness to my discipline.
While I teach, let me learn...Learn that I must Love, for I can have all knowledge, yet, without love, all knowledge profits me nothing.
Learn that I am the educator when children see something of You in me.
Learn that, while I point out to children the way to Heaven,
I must not lose that way, myself.

Finally, Let me understand that my greatest reward is not to be here,
but hereafter, when, accompanied by the children I have instructed, I will shine like a star in Heaven
For having diffused Your light upon earth.
