PRAYER FOR PREPARATION TO STUDY
Lord, I know you are with me and love me.
Give me peace of mind as I prepare for this time of study.
Help me to focus on my books and notes,
keep me from all distractions so that I will make the best use
of this time that is available to me.
Give me insight that I might understand what I am studying ,
and help me to remember it when the time comes.
Above all, I thank you for the ability to be able to study
and for the many gifts and talents you have given me.
Help me always to use them in such a way
that they honour you and do justice to myself. Amen
PRAYER BEFORE AN EXAMINATION
Dear Lord, as I take this exam, I thank you that my value
Is not based on my performance, but on your great love for me.
Come into my heart so that we can walk through this time together.
Help me, not only with this test, but the many tests of life that are sure to come my way.
As I take this exam, bring back to my mind everything I studied
and be gracious with what I have overlooked.
Help me to remain focussed and clam, confident in the facts and in my ability,
and firm in the knowledge that no matter what happens today you are there with me. Amen

We are officially moving from the friendship aspect of the Sunday Talk and entering the second major segment: dating! There’s what’s called a “hookup culture” that plagues our modern dating scene, but there could be so much more that people are willingly ignoring. This starts the exploration of courtship from a Christian perspective. We hope you can join us for the talk this Sunday evening, and head over to McDonald's afterwards to enjoy a delicious treat!
