Thinking of those doing Exams

There are slips of paper at each church door please write the name(s) of those you would like to be remembered during the exams and we will place them in front of the Altar and they will be prayed for each day at Mass while the exams are in progress.
Prayer for Exams
Lord, I come before you in need.
Exams are approaching and I am worried.
Give me courage to face the coming weeks.
Concentrate my mind on my studies. Help me to use my time well. May I work hard, but also rest and relax a little.
During each exam, may what I studied appear on the paper. May I read each question carefully, Identify what is asked, and answer well.
When the results come, may I be satisfied that I did my best.
May whatever path I choose in life bring me happiness and give me opportunities to better the world. Amen.
