Wisdom for Every
Generation Prayer

Heavenly Father,

We thank You for the gift of Your Son, who is the Way, the Truth, and the Life.

Help us to build a house of Wisdom on the UL campus.

Make this dwelling place a beacon of light to overcome the darkness

and a home where students come to know You and love You.

Father, we trust in Your goodness,

Especially as it is shown to us through the generosity of Your people.

Reward Your servants for their sacrifice and dedication to You.

Prompt us to follow Your Son’s example of heroic charity,

So that this house of Wisdom can be a wellspring of hope for every generation.

Through the intercession of Mary, Seat of Wisdom,

we make this prayer through Christ, our Lord.

Amen
