Prayers for Students

In ainm an Athar agus an Mhic agus an spioraid Naoimh. Amen.

Ár n-Athair atá ar neamh,
Go naofar d'ainim,
Go dtagfadh do ríocht
Go ndéantar do thoil ar an talamh
mar a dhéantar ar neamh.
Ár n-arán laethúil tabhair dúinn inniu,
agus maith dúinn ár bhfiacha
mar a mhaithimidne dár bhféichiúna féin
Ach ná lig sinn i gcathú,
ach saor sinn ó olc, Amen.

Sé do bheatha, a Mhuire,
atá lán de ghrásta,
Tá an Tiarna leat.
Is beannaithe thú idir mná,
Agus is beannaithe toradh do bhroinne, Íosa.
A Naomh-Mhuire, a Mháthair Dé,
guigh orainn na peacaigh,
anois, agus ar uair ár mbáis. Amen.

Glory be to the Father & to the Son & to the Holy spirit, as was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be word without end. Amen.



The Memorare


Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary,
that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection,
implored your help or sought your intercession,
was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence,
I fly to you, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother;
to you do I come, before you I stand, sinful and sorrowful.
O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions,
but in your mercy hear and answer me. Amen.



Prayers for exams.


Come Holy Spirit; fill me with the desire and strength to study well for my exam. I give thanks for the gift of my education. Give me the will to learn & the humility to ask for help when I need it. When I sit down to take an exam help my mind to be clear, my memory strong, and my fingers free from writerع‚آ€آ™s cramp. Bless my efforts and those of my friends, classmates and teachers. We make this prayer in the name of Jesus the Lord. Amen.



Prayer for our Students


God our Father give your Spirit to all our students, past & present. Make them conscious of their Christian dignity, of your love for them, of their power to bring light and healing to others. Fill them with the power to face up to the challenges and temptations of daily living. Mother Mary form in them the mind of Christ. Amen.



A Prayer for Sports and before games.


Oh God, we pray for all who participate in games: may their hearts be open to see your presence in and through sports; may their minds remember the element of fun reflective of your Spirit; may their bodies reflect the gracefulness and wonder of your creation. Let all who play the games be enriched by your presence in the gym and on the fields. Amen



Prayer to the Angel Guardian


Angel sent by God to guide me;
Be my light and walk beside me;
Be my guardian and protect me;
On the paths of life direct me. Amen
