Exam time and leaving school

Dear Lord, help us to appreciate all the useful opportunities we have and to use them to the best of our abilities. Give us the strength to persevere with our work, especially when we feel most pressured and stressed. Give us patience with those whom we perhaps dislike, let us be kind to those who may be unkind to us and generous to those who are selfish. Let us show them  your love and compassion. Amen
