TEENAGER PRAYERS

A collection of beautiful prayers for Teenager's


Prayer For the Desire To Learn

Almighty God, give me a deep curiosity about all of Your creation. Move me to search and to question; give me insight and understanding, a retentive memory and the patience to ponder and reflect. May I not stop with knowledge, but proceed to understanding of heart and wisdom to view the world with the eyes of faith. Point out the beginning, direct the progress, help in the completion. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Prayer For Parents

Almighty and everlasting God, You have lovingly called us into life by means of our parents who thereby share in Your divine power. Mercifully hear the prayer of love which we offer to You for those with whom You have shared Your fatherly kindness so that they might lavish upon us, as we journey through life, the consoling gift of Your holy and generous love.

Dear Lord, fill our parents with Your choicest blessings and enrich their souls with Your holy grace. Grant that they may faithfully and constantly guard that likeness to Your spiritual union with Your Church, which You first imprinted upon them on their wedding day. Fill them with Your spirit of holy reverence which is the beginning of wisdom, and enable them to impart it always to their children. May they ever walk in the way of Your commandments; and may their children be their joy in this earthly exile and their crown of glory in our heavenly home.

Finally, Lord God, grant that both our father and our mother may reach old age in continuous health of mind and body. May they deserve to sing Your praises forever in our heavenly homeland together with us, their children. May they give You abundant thanks for having bestowed upon them the great privilege of sharing in Your infinite fruitfulness and Your divine fatherhood. Amen.

Prayer For Grandparents

Dear Lord, fill our grandparents with Your choicest blessings and enrich their souls with Your heavenly grace. Grant that they may faithfully and constantly guard that likeness of You which is in their hearts.

Fill them with the spirit of wisdom and enable them to impart it always to their grandchildren. May they ever walk in the way of Your commandments and may their grandchildren be their joy in this earthly life and part of their crown of glory in our heavenly home.

Dear Lord, grant our grandparents continuous health of mind and body. May they deserve to sing Your praises forever in our heavenly homeland, together with us, their grandchildren. Help us, Lord, to be helpful to them. Amen.

O God of truth, from whom every good thought comes, help us in our study. Let us read more carefully and listen to wisdom more humbly. Teach us in the course of this year that every discovery of truth is a discovery of You and the more we learn of Your laws and Your ways, the nearer we are brought to an understanding of Your divine being. Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

O God, teach me to work hard and play fair; and help me to forgive those who are unkind to me. Keep me ready to help others and send me chances to do some good each day. Amen.

A Prayer Before Study

Incomprehensible Creator, the true Fountain of light and only Author of all knowledge; vouchsafe, we beseech Thee, to enlighten our understandings, and to remove from us all darkness of sin and ignorance. Thou, who makest eloquent the tongues of those that want utterance, direct our tongues, and pour on our lips the grace of Thy blessing. Give us a diligent and obedient spirit, quickness of apprehension, capacity of retaining, and the powerful assistance of Thy holy grace; that what we hear or learn we may apply to Thy honor and the eternal salvation of our own souls. Amen.

Prayer for Students

Under thy patronage, dear Mother, and calling on the mystery of thine Immaculate Conception, I desire to pursue my studies and my literary labors: I hereby solemnly declare that I am giving myself to these studies chiefly to the following end: that I may the better contribute to the glory of God and to the promotion of thy veneration among men. I pray thee, therefore, most loving Mother, who art the Seat of Wisdom, to bless my labors in thy loving-kindness. Moreover I promise with true affection and a willing spirit, as it is right that I should do, to ascribe all the good that shall come to me from thee, wholly to thine intercession for me in God's holy presence. Amen.

A Prayer for Study 

Bestow on me, O Lord, my God, understanding to know Thee, diligence to seek Thee, wisdom to find Thee, a life and conversation which may please Thee, perseverance in waiting patiently for Thee, and a hope which may embrace Thee at the last. Grant me to be pierced with compunction by Thy sorrows through true repentance, to improve all Thy gifts and benefits during this my pilgrimage through Thy grace, and so at length to enter into Thy full and consummate joy in Thy glory. Who livest and reignest God, forever and ever. Amen.
