School Prayer


Eternal God / Creator of all / I firmly believe / that I am now / in Your presence. / I adore / Your divine majesty / and I ask of you / to enlighten my mind / that I may know you / more clearly / so move my heart / that I may love you / above all things / and my neighbour / as myself / for the love of you / Amen.


O God / infinite wisdom / and the source of all knowledge / grant that we may remember / what we have learned. / We offer you / our works / endeavours / our failures and successes. / Forgive us our shortcomings / and give us the courage / to follow always / the path of truth. / O Lord, keep us safe / along the way / Amen.

Prayer of St. Ignatius of Loyola

Dear Lord, teach me to be generous,
teach me to serve you as you deserve,
to give and not to count the cost,
to fight and not to heed the wounds,
to toil and not to seek for rest,
to labour and not to ask for any reward,
except that of knowing that I do,
Your will, O my God.
