Prayer of a John Carroll University Alumnus/a

O God, thank you for the gift of my Jesuit education. Bless all those who helped make John Carroll possible for me and who continue to provide me with love and encouragement.

Bless the faculty and staff with your grace as they guide students on their journey to become women and men for others.

May your spirit inspire the minds and hearts of current students and grant them strength to persevere through the daily challenges and decisions of college life.

Help me seek your presence in the routine of my everyday home and work life. Impart your wisdom that I may continue to seek knowledge with enthusiasm and contribute my time and talents in service to others.

Bless the Society of Jesus with increased vocations, so that future John Carroll generations may continue to be influenced by their ministry.

Amen.
