Prayer of St Thomas Aquinas

Grant me, O Lord my God,
a mind to know you,
a heart to seek you,
wisdom to find you,
conduct pleasing to you,
faithful perseverance in waiting for you,
and a hope of finally embracing you.


Blessed are the pure in heart - they shall see God.

My own favorite, the one we learned and prayed daily whilst attending Dr. Boyle's classes at the University of St. Thomas:

Grant, O merciful God that I may ardently desire, prudently examine, truthfully acknowledge, and perfectly accomplish what is pleasing to Thee, for the praise and glory of Thy Name. Amen.

He's beautifully thorough, isn't he? =) What I memorised was his Prayer before Study.
