God, we have no God but you.
You are worthy of all honor and glory.
To you we give our whole hearts and minds, our hopes, our desires.
We entrust to you all the tests and challenges before us, for without you we can do nothing.
You promise to remain always with us, with Loras College, in the presence of your beloved Son, Jesus, and in the counsel and peace poured out through your mutual Spirit.
Stir up this Spirit now in every person who composes the Loras community: students, faculty, staff, administrators, alumni, parents, guardians, and friends.
Bestow wisdom and light, faith, humility, and courage for the way that lies ahead.
Free us to embrace your will, and equip us with what we need so that Loras will flourish and your name be known.
We give you thanks today for life and love, and we will sing your praises, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, in company with Blessed Mary, Seat of Wisdom, and Joseph our steadfast patron, now and forever.
