A Prayer Before Examinations
it seems as though our lives
are one test after another,
weighing us in somebodyâ€™s balance.
Save us from taking the coming tests
too seriously or too lightly,
but grant that we may reflect the best of the work weâ€™ve done
and the best of the teaching weâ€™ve received;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
