Source of all wisdom,
help me to use my time
and my intelligence wisely
as I prepare for my exams.
Help me to dispose myself
to listen to Your Holy Spirit,
so that You, as my Loving Father,
may place me in a state of prayer
and lead me to understand
that the supreme wisdom
is knowing I am Your child.
Help me to remain serene
so that my work may truly reflect
this profound truth.
Mary, Mother of my spiritual life,
guide me in the ways of your Son,
so that my work may help
to transform this world for His glory.
(Adapted from a prayer card distributed by the Newman Catholic Center
at Baruch College, New York City)
