Lord, you are my patience, my strength, my light and my counsel.
You guide me in what I have to say to my pupils and you make them responsive to my words.
Be with them and with me at all times.
Give me for their sake a share in the gifts of your Holy Spirit:
Wisdom, understanding, counsel, courage, knowledge, filial devotion to you and a fear of displeasing you.
Increase my faith and give me zeal to build your kingdom.
Accept my work as the continuation of your divine Son's earthly ministry.
I ask this in His name.
