St. Thomas Aquinas: "There are five excellent qualities which are required in all prayer. A prayer must be confident, ordered, suitable, devout and humble."

Prayer to St. Thomas Aquinas before using the internet

Next Prayer

Infinite Creator, Who, from the treasures of Your wisdom, have established three hierarchies of angels, have arrayed them in marvelous order above the highest heavens, and have marshaled the regions of the universe with such artful skill, You are proclaimed the true font of light and wisdom, pour forth a ray of Your brightness into the darkened places of my mind; disperse from my soul the twofold darkness into which I was born: sin and ignorance. You make eloquent the tongues of infants. refine my speech and pour forth upon my lips The goodness of Your blessing. Grant to me keenness of mind, capacity to remember, skill in learning, subtlety to interpret, and eloquence in speech. May You guide the beginning of my work, direct its progress, and bring it to completion. You Who are true God and true Man, who live and reign, world without end. Amen.
