A Student's Prayer

Dear Lord,

Help me to be the best student I can be.

Help to study well and to study often, especially when I don't feel like studying at all.

Help me to be honest when I'm tempted to cheat.

Help me to listen to my teachers and my coaches.

Help me to play fair and to play safely.

Help me to be kind to everyone at school and especially to those whom others treat unkindly.

Help me to treat others as I would like them to treat me.

Help me to be a good friend to others.

Help me to help others who need my help.

Help me to do the best work I can do.

Help me to use all the gifts you have given me.

Help me to love and respect my parents.

Help me to trust in you, Lord, and in your love for me.                 

Help me,  Lord, I need you!

Amen.
