PRAYER BEFORE ORAL DEFENSE In the name . . .

All: In thankful for the promise of your presence for where two or three are gathered in your name you are in their midst, we offer you this sincere prayer. My God, enable me to trust in the productive outcome of this oral defense/ I am about to face; help me to contribute/ my own share of optimism,/ confidence/ and advancement of new knowledge/ in the field I wish to excel. Keep far from me at this moment/ any presumption/ that it all depends exclusively on me. I accept this oral defense/ because it is an important contribution to my personal development and social transformation. Heavenly Father, who never fails in generosity,/ I take this opportunity to thank you/ for giving me an adviser, the readers, and the faculty/ all of whom have prepared me for this significant event in my life/ and for the challenges of a bright future. Shower them with your abundant blessings! Lord our God, true source of light and wisdom, give us a keen sense of understanding/ a retentive memory/ subtlety in interpreting/ and elegance in speech. Enlighten the beginning of this defense, guide its progress/ and bring it to fruition. Let this day be full of insights and inspiration as we share in the great task of humanizing the world with your Truth and Love. AMEN.
