Prayer of Teachers

Lord Jesus Christ,
imbue me with the knowledge
of both secular and religious subjects
that is necessary to my task on earth.
Let me have the suitable qualifications
and a pedagogical skill
that is in harmony with the discoveries
of the contemporary world.
Help me to be united with my students
by the bond of love,
and work in partnership with their parents
to stimulate the students to act for themselves.
Even after their graduation
let me continue to assist them
with advice and friendship.
Bestow on me an apostolic spirit
to bear witness, both by life and by instruction,
to the unique Teacher - You, Jesus Christ
