For Ordering a Life Wisely

Thomas Aquinas is said to have recited a particular prayer every day.

I have taken segments of that prayer to post on occasions. The prayer is on my "things to memorize" when I have a regular classroom of kids. If memorized in small segments, kids can easily recall this prayer throughout their lives.

O merciful God,
grant that I may desire ardently,
search prudently,
recognize truly,
and bring to perfect completion
whatever is pleasing to You
for the praise and glory of Your name.
