Prayer for Academics

Are you a student? Or having difficulties in your studies? Then you must see this!

Passing through the phases of schooling and learning is one very tasky process; ranging from making provisions for schooling materials to studying really hard to ensuring that you come out with great grades. For many, the most challenging part is having to provide for schooling items…some parents have to struggle twice as hard for those to be provided, while some students are left to fend for themselves which makes it twice as challenging for them compared to other students.

But for most, the major task lies in having great grades; beating their mates to come top in class, gaining the respect of fellow students and teachers, doing their family proud and have an overall impressive result. I must tell you, prayers go a long way in helping us achieve academic success.
“You can ask for anything in my name, and I will do it, so that the Son can bring glory to the Father” (John 14:13).

Wisdom is all you need to excel academically, to understand all you’re being taught, to answer tests questions intelligently and to excel in projects and assignments . Well of course, divine providence too. Whatever request it is concerning your academics, table it before God through prayers with faith. Doesn’t matter for how long you’ve struggled in your academics. Say this prayer of St. Thomas Aquinas for your academics:

St. Thomas Aquinas’ prayer before study

“Creator of all things,
true Source of light and wisdom,
lofty origin of all being,
graciously let a ray of Your brilliance
penetrate into the darkness of my understanding
and take from me the double darkness
in which I have been born,
an obscurity of both sin and ignorance.

Give me a sharp sense of understanding,
a retentive memory,
and the ability to grasp things correctly and fundamentally.
Grant me the talent of being exact in my explanations,
and the ability to express myself with thoroughness and charm.
Point out the beginning,
direct the progress,
and help in completion;
through Christ our Lord.


“He has made everything beautiful in its time” (Ecclesiastes 3:11). That is God’s promise. In same way, your academics will be made perfect. All you need do is work hard and pray harder. Good luck!
