Prayer for our students taking exams
We remember in prayer the young people from our parish you are taking the junior or leaving certificate or third level exams this summer. They will be remembered at Mass in St Michael’s Church on Sunday 17 May during which they will lead us in song and prayer. The Seinn choir will sing and paly during the Mass.
A candle is lit each day during Mass as a symbol of the prayerful support of the parish community.
Prayer in Preparation for exams.
O God of Wisdom,
I thank you for the knowledge gained and experiences of this time. I come to you on this day and ask you to enlighten my mind and heart.
Let your Holy Spirit be with me as I prepare for these exams, guiding my studies, and giving me insight so that I can perform to the best of my ability.
Please grant me the strength to handle the pressure of these days of exams, the confidence to feel secure in my knowledge, and the ability to keep an appropriate perspective through it all.
Help me to keep in mind what is truly important, even as I focus my time and energy on these exams.
Finally, may I sense your peace in knowing that I applied myself to the challenges of this day.
I ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord.
