Prayer is the key way an individual develops their relationship with God. Students at Jesuit Dallas are offered many opportunities to experience prayer as a large community including weekly prayer services, Morning Prayer, and the Examen. Additional opportunities like Rosary Wednesdays, Adoration Fridays, and Stations of the Cross during the Lenten season are also available.

For dates and times of our prayer offerings, please visit our Events page.

We invite you to pray with us

Morning Prayer

The following is an archive of the prayers led before the morning PA announcements for the 2016-2017 academic year.


Mr. Garrison's Prayer for the New School Year

Heavenly Father,
bless these students before us.
Help each of them to know
who they are and what they stand for.
Grant them the desire to be
a catalyst for light and love,
and to bring inspiration
to all those they encounter.
May they have the strength to stand
tall in the face of conflict,
and the courage to be a voice
that speaks for love,
even when they are afraid.
May they have the humility
to follow their hearts,
and the passion to live their souls’ desires.
May they seek to know the highest truth
and dismiss those things that drive
them away from knowing You.
May they embrace both
moments of light and of dark
as they journey through this year ahead.
May they be brave enough to hear their heart
and let it soften
that they may gracefully choose
Faith over fear,
Empathy over apathy,
Tenderness over indifference,
Unity over division.
May they be engulfed by Your love for them.
Let their encounters with us be
an experience of this love of Yours.
Help us to mentor and guide them
on their journeys.
Help them to know,
through our actions and words,
that they are worthy and they are loved.
St. Ignatius, pray for us.
