Prayer For Finals

Here is another prayer for you students taking finals. It is from St. Thomas Aquinas and is what one of my graduate school profs would have us pray before everyone of his classes:
Grant, O merciful God, that I may
ardently desire,
prudently examine,
truthfully acknowledge,
and perfectly accomplish
what is pleasing to You,
for the praise and glory of Your Name. Amen.
Sometime soon I will post my profs comments on this prayer and how it is a "masterpiece of theological composition".
