End of the Semester

It is the end of the semester for many colleges. It is a time of high stress and anxiety over final projects and tests. Over the search for a summer job. Over graduation and what the future may hold.

Here is a prayer for anxious days.

Loving God,

you want us to give thanks for all things,

 to fear nothing except losing you,

and to lay all our cares on you,

knowing that you care for us.

Protect us from faithless fears and worldly anxieties,

and grant that no clouds in this mortal life

may hide from us the light of your immortal love

shown to us in your Son,

Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.

from the Book of Common Worship  Daily Prayer  (Westminster John Knox Press: Louisville, London)
