A prayer for all those sitting Leaving and Junior Certificate Examinations


God stay close to me today

Guide my study and light my way.

Ease my nerves and comfort me

With peace and love so tenderly.

May I remember all the things I need

And understand all I study and read.

May I strive to give my best

And do myself justice in each test.

May the topics I know and like to appear

On the exam paper to lessen my fear.

And during the moments I may feel stressed

I’ll try to remember the ways I’m blessed.

And if there are times that I feel at sea,

Help me to trust that you’re here with me. Amen
