Prayer for Studying

Lord, I cannot believe how much time I waste. Please
help me be more intense about my studies. I really am
interested in the things that the professor says in class.

But when I finally sit down to study, I welcome distractions
from studying so easily. You have given me a good
mind, and you want me to explore your creation. Give me
enthusiasm, Lord, for the subjects I am studying.

Keep my eyes open and my mind on topic. Help me learn the
material so that I can explain it clearly and convincingly to
others, especially my friends.

Jesus, you must have spent a lot of time reflecting on life to
think of the parables that are recorded in the Gospels.

Make me a good, critical thinker and help me to express myself
clearly. Help me to use my mind for your greater Glory.
