“A Prayer of the Teacher”

You, O Lord, 
are my strength, my patience, my light, and my counsel. 

It is you who touches the hearts of the children entrusted to my care. 

Abandon me not to myself for one moment.

 For my own guidance and that of my students, 

grant me the spirit of wisdom and understanding, 

the spirit of counsel and fortitude, the spirit of knowledge and piety, 

the spirit of a holy fear of you and an ardent zeal to procure your glory.
I unite my efforts to those of Jesus Christ, and I beg the Most Blessed Virgin,
Saint Joseph, the Guardian Angels, and Saint John Baptist de La Salle
to protect me this day in the performance of my duties. Amen.

From the Christian Brothers
