Thank You, Lord, for listening to our prayer. We know that You will continue to bless PACU: its officers, member schools and the thousands of faculty members and students who are part of our PACU family. Guide us so that we may become worthy of Your trust and love and, thus, become true agents of change, renewal and innovation for the good and the future of our country in our global society. We ask You all these, through our Lord. Amen.
