“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as though you were working for the Lord and not for people. Remember that the Lord will give you as a reward what he has kept for his people. For Christ is the real Master you serve.” (Colossians 3:23-24)

Father God, we praise you for the gifts of education, intelligence, wisdom, and friendship. We pray that as the year comes to its climax for our VCE students, you give them peace of heart, strength of mind, and joy in their spirits. We pray for the grace of recollection, resilience, and for gifted hands and thoughts as they sit their exams.

Jesus our Lord, we thank you that all knowledge, wisdom, and life proceeds from you, for all things are held together by your love and mercy (Colossians 1:7). We are thankful that you redeem and refresh our hearts and minds and that you empower us to know God and the world you created.

Holy Spirit, we thank you that you give us energy and life. We ask that you comfort our VCE students as they sit their exams over the coming weeks. We pray that they will know the peace and wisdom you offer and that their gifts and talents will honour you.

Lord God, we pray for the future of all our Year 12 students, that you will guide their footsteps and establish their plans whichever direction they head. May each student know your love, grace, and plans for their life.

In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.

“Commit your work to the Lord, and your plans will be established.” (Proverbs 16:3)
