Prayer to Read and Acquire Knowledge

When You Take Up A Book
Oh, fountain of all light, vouchsafe, I beseech thee, to enlighten my understanding; give me a diligent and humble spirit, and an efficacious desire to apply whatever I read to the glory of God, the sanctification of my soul, and the salvation of others through interior and exterior study in all that you wish me to learn.

After Reading
Oh my God, foster the divine seed which thou hast sown in my soul.
Grant Oh my Jesus, that like thy Blessed Mother, I may keep all thy words, pondering them in my heart. When I read, let me be moved to learn what is honest, thorough, and timeless. Once learned let me share it with all who cross my path.
