All Saints Day
God of holiness,
your glory is proclaimed in every age:
as we rejoice in the faith of your saints,
inspire us to follow their example
with boldness and joy;
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and forever. Amen.

Students Prayer When Undertaking Exams
Dear God, I ask that You would be with me as I prepare for my exams. Thank You, Lord, for the wonderful educational opportunity that You have granted me, enabling me to undertake this course of study.
As I now prepare for my exams, I pray that You would be close to me and calm my nerves. Remove any anxious thoughts from my heart, so that I may approach this exam with a clear mind and a tranquil spirit.
Help me to do my best I pray, to answer the questions clearly and to express my thoughts lucidly. Calm my nerves I pray, and bring to my mind all that I have studied, so that I may be able to answer all the questions to the very best of my ability.
Thank You that You have promised to be with me in all things I ask that You stay very close in this exam. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.

Commission & Benediction
Go now and live in awe of God.
Purify yourselves in heart and in deed.
Hunger and thirst for righteousness;
show mercy, and make peace.
And may God take your burdens and free you from fear;
May Christ Jesus be your shepherd and your shelter;
And may the Holy Spirit guide you to springs of the water of life.
Let us go in peace to love and serve the Lord,
In the name of Christ. Amen.
