Prayer of a John Carroll Student

O God, thank you for the many blessings in my life. Thank you for the opportunity at John Carroll to develop my gifts further, to expand my knowledge, to mature in my beliefs and values, to become more sensitive to your presence.

During my years on campus, may I know the joys of friendship as well as have the courage at times to stand alone. May I respect and respond to the needs of those around me. May I approach my studies with intensity but keep my perspective and sense of humor. May the University be a better place because I am here.

Amen.
