Prayer at Examination Time
God of wisdom: guide me as I choose questions and in the way I answer them.
God of peace: keep me calm so that I will do the best that I can.
God of understanding: help me put all of this into perspective.
I ask these prayers in the name of Jesus, friend of students. Amen.
