By Aubrey Murtha — Hello, students! Today, I’d like to offer a prayer for all of our test takers out there. Good luck on midterms. Just a few more days before you can take some time to enjoy this beautiful autumn season.
Prayer Before a Test
My God, enable me to trust in the good outcome
of the test I am about to take;
help me to contribute my own share
of optimism and confidence.
With your grace, my God,
I hope to crown my efforts with success.
Keep far from me at this moment
any presumption that it all depends
exclusively on me.
You are next to me, my God,
the necessary and welcome presence
in all the moments of my life.
I will take this test, my God,
because it is important
for my personal development.
My God, be the source of my inspiration
in my doubts and uncertainties,
supporting me with your blessing.
