Spirit of God, fill our hearts with a desire to seek truth and rejoice in beauty. Help us to know what is pleasing to You and to understand what is right and good in Your sight. Give us the Spirit of Learning that we may please You by our thoughts and love You in Your creation. Give all teachers Your constant encouragement and guide them in their good work. Spirit of God, make us effective witnesses of Your truth to all whose lives we touch. We ask this in the name of Jesus the Lord.
