DAY 2

MORNING PRAYER
God of Wisdom, 
I thank you for the knowledge gained
 
and the learning experiences of the semester.
 
I come to you and ask you to illuminate my mind and heart.
 
Let your Holy Spirit be with me as I prepare for exams, 
guiding my studies and giving me insight
 
so that I can perform to the best of my ability. 
 
Grant me the strength to handle the pressure of these days, 
the confidence to feel secure in my knowledge,
 
and the ability to keep a proper 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.
 
We ask this through Christ our Lord,  
Amen
