"Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman...."
II Timothy 2:15
Great Instructor, help us to move beyond physical exhaustion to study and show ourselves approved of God, to do our best in institutions of learning. Open our minds to new ideas. Open our minds to read and receive fresh insights and new information. Use our minds in exercises of critical thinking not just for our own benefit but also so that our learning will be a blessing to others.
Teach us to be diligent in our studies. Teach us to be faithful to the assigned tasks. Teach us wisdom beyond the calculations, instruments and the printed pages of our text books. Teach us to apply what we learn in tangible ways. Teach us, Lord to seek knowledge that is honorable, true and just. In Jesus name, Amen.
