A Prayer for Al Who Have Exams at this Time

Celtic spirituality is a wonderful way of being in the world.    I do not know a great deal about Celtic Spirituality and Religion.  However, it was formative in the foundation of Huron Diocese.  A few years ago the clergy in the Diocese received a copy of The Celtic Way of Evangelism by George G. Hunter 111.  It is a good introduction into Celtic religious tradition and, as the title suggests, evangelism.  One of the things that stuck we when read in the book was the way there seems to be prayers for all aspects of life.  One which is particularly appropriate for you at this time of the end of term as assignments are due and exams loom is a prayer for exams:
I bless this exam
In the name of the Designer of truth.
I bless this exam
In the name of the Protector from ill.
I bless this exam
In the name of the Spirit who guides.
Open my eyes to see how this subject
reflects something of you.
Aid me in understanding this subject
With my heart as well as with my head.
Give me
Wisdom to know the nub of things,
Strength to recall what is useful,
Peace to leave the results with you.
I will keep you all in my prayers during the upcoming week.  Blessings.
