Dear Lord, we pray for all the students of our Parish who will be sitting State Examinations at this time.
Help them to see that their value as a person is not based on their performance, but on your great love for them. Come into their heart so that they may know that they are not alone. Help them, not only with these examinations, but with the many tests of life that are sure to come their way. As they take these exams, bring back to their mind everything they have studied and give them the skills they need to engage that which they may have overlooked. Help them to remain focused and calm, confident in the facts they have learned and in their ability. May they be held firm in the knowledge that no matter what happens during these examinations that you are always with them. Amen.
