Please bless this computer lab
and all who enter.
Let me show respect to my teacher, volunteers,
and my classmates.
Help me to be a good listener, follow directions,
And be helpful to those sitting next to me.
Give me the patience if I have technical difficulties
and protect all the equipment in this lab.
Thank you God for blessing us with the opportunity
To learn new things and Do Them
In Your Memory in our computer lab.
A Prayer Before Logging Onto the Internet
Fr. John Zuhlsdorf
Almighty and eternal God,
who created us in Thine image
and bade us to seek after all
that is good, true and beautiful,
especially in the divine person of
Thine Only-begotten Son,
our Lord Jesus Christ,
grant, we beseech Thee, that,
through the intercession of Saint Isidore,
Bishop and Doctor,
during our journeys through the internet
we will direct our hands and eyes only
to that which is pleasing to Thee
and treat with charity and patience
all those souls whom we encounter.
Through Christ our Lord.
Prayer Over A New Computer
Bishop Robert Finn
Loving God and Father,
source of all good and knowledge,
we praise you for your loving kindness shown to us
through your Son Jesus Christ who became flesh and
dwelt among us and through your Holy Spirit
poured forth into our hearts.
Grant that this new computer may be used
in service to you and all truth.
May it be an instrument that serves
to lift up and not to tear down.
May pornography, hatred or any other such evil
never appear on this screen.
May I and all who use this computer do so with
purity of heart and free from all evil.
May my work on this computer serve to
glorify your name and build up your kingdom.
Lead us through this life to share in the perfect love
and joy you share with Jesus Christ your Son our Lord
and the Holy Spirit, one God for ever and ever.
Help me log on without fretting
Guide me, as I am interneting
Bless my downloading and uploading
Keep my browser from exploding
May my website be protected?
Let not my password be rejected
Keep my line always connected
And all my inputs be accepted
Please keep my entire program alive
And to remember to back up my hard drive
And protect my computer from crashing drive,
From a virus that would make it nesting hive
A Computer Prayer
Our program, which art in memory
Hello be thy name
Thy operating system come
Thy commands be done
At the Printer,
As it is on the screen.
Give us this day our daily data
And forgive us our input/output errors
As we forgive those whose circuits are faulty.
Lead us not into frustration
And deliver us from power surges.
For this is the algorithm,
Application and solution.
Looping forever and ever.
Our Hard Drive
Which art internal
Volume C by name;
Thy code be clean,
Thy fonts be seen
On screen as they are on paper.
Give us this day our documents,
And lead us not into fragmentation
But deliver us our data.
For thine is the SCSI,
And the EISA, and the NuBus,
Forever and Ever,
My Computer Prayer
Every evening as
I'm lying here in bed,
This tiny little prayer
keeps running through my head.
God, bless my mom and dad
And bless my little pup
And look out for my sister
When things aren't looking up.
And God, there's one more thing
I wish that you could do
Hope you don't mind my asking
But please bless my computer too.
Now, I know that's not normal
To bless a motherboard
But just listen for a second
While I explain to you, my Lord.
You see, that little metal box
Holds more than odds and ends.
Inside those small compartments
Are a hundred of my 'friends'.
I know for sure they like me
By the kindness that they give
And this little scrap of metal
Is how I travel to where they live.
By faith is how I know them
much the same as you
I share in what life brings them
From that our friendship grew.
Please take an extra minute
From your duties up above
To bless this scrap of metal
That's filled with so much love!
