merciful and patient, grant us grace, I beseech thee,
ever to teach in a teachable spirit;
learning along with those we teach,
and learning from them whenever thou so pleasest.
Word of God, speak to us,
speak by us us, what thou wilt.
Wisdom of God, instruct us,
instruct by us, if and whom thou wilt.
Eternal truth, reveal thyself to us, in whatever measure thou wilt;
that we and they may all be taught of God.
Father in Heaven, this day always brings with it internal quivers and questions. Give me strength, I pray, for the task ahead. Help me to work hard and to finish well. Help me “not to hinder our children from growing in faith and love towards thee”. Remove my selfishness and restore to me the joy of my salvation. Keep us from distractions. Help me to love physics, O Lord, and I will give you the glory. Make me a blessing to my family. Thank you for the gifts you have given. You are my King. Amen.
