Prayer to the Holy Spirit


Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful, and enkindle in them the fire of your love.

V. Send forth your Spirit and they shall be created

R. And you shall renew the face of the earth.

Let us pray.



O God, who taught the hearts of the faithful by the light of the Holy Spirit,

grant that by the gift of the same Spirit we may always be truly wise and ever rejoice in his consolation.

Through Christ our Lord.




Prayer for Students 


God 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.




Undertaking Exams


Loving God,

be with me now,

as I prepare for my exams.


Thank you for the many talents and gifts you have given me and for the opportunity of education.


Calm my nerves and anxiety, help me

to remember all that I have studied,

to express it clearly and to answer the questions

the very best that I can.


Holy Spirit, sit with me in my exam - and always.


In Jesus' name, Amen.


Prayer for the Future  


Loving God,

each day as I step further into my future,

give me the courage, knowledge and

patience that I need.


Remind me that you always journey with me

and that you will never lead me into anything

that you won't lead me through.


Thank you for the gift of my life.

May the way I live be my gift back to you -

with your love and guidance


In Jesus' name, Amen.
