Thought For The Week

Today the Junior and Leaving Cert exams begin. It is an anxious time for all students doing the exams, their parents, their extended families and teachers. I keep reminding and assuring our students how many in our communities are praying for them throughout the exams. I invite you to pray for them too and all our little prayers will add up to something special and significant.

Here is a short prayer for students starting the exams next Wednesday:

Loving God, I turn to you today. As the exam approaches I am nervous and so I ask you to help me. You know how important these exams are to me. Set me free from worry, give me your peace and help me to think clearly. Help me to remember what I have learned, to use my time well, not to panic, to do my best and not to worry about the outcome. Help me to realise that the exams are not there to catch me out but to find out how much I know.

Lord, keep me calm so that I can write down all I know. Keep my friends calm too, we're all in this together! Let me sleep each night so that I am refreshed and renewed for the next exam. Even if I struggle I must always remember that there is a bigger picture of which these exams are only a small part of.

Most important of all calm me down, keep me focussed, guide me along, get me through the scary moments and make sure I attempt every question. Thank you for being my friend today and always. Amen
