Prayer for our Schools - 12/21/16

Grant to our students, O Lord, a sense of calm and peace as they continue with their semester exams.  Give them the wisdom and understanding to draw on the knowledge they acquired during this first semester as they respond to what is asked of them.  Grant that they may complete their exams to the best of their ability while knowing that their value depends not on their grades, but is found in Christ Jesus who died to give them eternal life; through the same Jesus Christ, our Lord.

O Dayspring, splendor of light everlasting: Come and enlighten those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death.
