A Prayer for Students and Teachers

Heavenly Father,

When the Hebrew people needed the guidance of your word, you led Moses to your holy mountain and he taught the law in commandments
written in stone.

When the world was awaiting its savior, you raised up John the Baptist, and he taught the people about the promised Messiah.

When the Church was in need, you raised up great teachers like Augustine, Teresa of Ávila, Dominic, and Elizabeth Ann Seton
to manifest the riches of the faith.

Give the same guidance to our teachers today, that they may foster knowledge and wisdom in all whose lives they will touch. Amen.
