A Graduation Prayer

Loving God
I have knowledge, so will You show me now
how to use it wisely and find a way
to make the world I live in a little better place,
and make life
with its problems
a little bit easier to face.

Grant me faith and courage
and put purpose in my days,
and show me how to serve you
in effective ways.
So my education, my knowledge and my skill
may find their true fulfillment
as I learn to do your will.

And may I ever be aware in everything I do,
that knowledge comes from learning,
and wisdom comes from you.
