Prayer for Marquette

God, Father and Mother of us all,
bless the mission of Marquette University,
and bestow your grace on our strivings toward that

Motivate all students to seek wisdom:
through conversing, writing, and criticizing;
through exploration and imagination.

Inspire our faculty with effective ways
to touch the minds of the young,
and with insights into the beauty of your universe.

Help our administrators and staff
to foster learning, research, justice, and faith.

Watch over our alumni and friends.

Give success to our scholastic competitions and athletic teams;
grant us good health and good humor.

In our neighborhood and in our country,
help all people to live in justice and peace,
and to find productive jobs,
so that they can care for their families.

Most of all, help each of us to grow
in love and understanding of your Son and our Brother,
Jesus Christ, who is the way to you, our Creator. Amen.
