Today is the first day of Finals for our students here at Baylor, our center has been packed the past couple of days with students busy finishing up papers, reading and preparing for exams. Here on our blog, we’re going to post some prayers each days of finals!
Since today is also the celebration of the Immaculate Conception, this one seems especially relevant today and is a prayer for all students.
Under thy patronage, dear Mother, and calling on the mystery of thine Immaculate Conception, I desire to pursue my studies and my literary labors: I hereby solemnly declare that I am giving myself to these studies chiefly to the following end: that I may the better contribute to the Glory of God and to the promotion of thy veneration among men. I pray thee, therefore, most loving Mother, who art the Seat of Wisdom, to bless my labors in thy loving-kindness. Moreover I promise with true affection and a willing spirit, as it is right that I should do, to ascribe all the good that shall come to me therefrom, wholly to thine intercession for me in God’s holy presence. Amen.
