Prayer Against the Humdrum

Most High, glorious God,                                                                                                     enlighten my mind to receive the good teachings of the words of my professors,       although their speech is lined with the knowledge of your goodness,                                 they reach my ears in the most dullest fashion,                                                                           it is an injustice to speak of your blessedness in such a dismal manner,                                 I entrust that you have the power to do this, O God,                                                 because you live and reign through all ages. Amen.
