Finals Week Prayer 12/10/2012

Dear Heavenly Father, Lord God Almighty,

Maker of Heaven and Earth, Creator of all things, Leader of our lives, Healer of our hearts, Lover of our souls;

Guide, director, comforter, friend;

We pray to you because you are all those things that fit into the simple word “God.”  You are our God and we love, serve and worship you for it.  As we begin finals week we ask that you are our God in this moment.  Show yourself to be strong and mighty.  Show yourself to be true and faithful and kind.  Help us to have great and wonderful stories to add to the fame of our God when the week is through.  Get your glory through our lives this week.

Since this is the end of a term we look back and ask your forgiveness for all the ways we have strayed.  Forgive us for when we forgot about you.  Forgive us when we acted like you did not exist.  Forgive us when we took for granted your gifts and blessings.  Help the struggles of this term to make us stronger in your name and to make our walk closer to you.  At this moment especially forgive us for those wasted opportunities when we did not love the Lord our God with all of our minds.  There were many times this term when we could have been more diligent in our school work, in our studies.  We could have been more faithful to you.  We could have connected our spiritual lives to our academic lives so that studying was not only work but also worship.  Lord, we could and should be more prepared for this week than we are.  Forgive us for all of our short-comings.  Help them not to interfere with your blessing.

We thank you. Although, we have not always been faithful to you, you have always been faithful to us.  We thank you for your faithfulness in bringing us to this point, for waking us up every morning of this term, for getting us through every day.  We did not have to be here and it is only by your grace and mercy that this moment is even possible.  Thank you Lord, for all you have done because it truly comes from all that you are.

And because you have shown yourself to be faithful in the past we trust that you will be faithful in the future.  Lord, be with us this week.  Help us to be able to preform to the best of our abilities this week.  Help us to study hard and remember well.  Help us to be able to reproduce that which we know clearly and concisely in the form that is required of us.  Give us favor.  In other words, continue to be our God this finals week as you have been all term long.

We pray this in the strong and powerful name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

If you are a Drexel student struggling this week I will be available on campus Wednesday, Thursday and Friday this week.  Do not hesitate to call or email.
