A prayer for all students awaiting their exam results

As thousands of students across the country await exam results that will determine the next stage in their life’s development, the Church of England has issued a prayer to support them through the anxious moments of waiting.

The prayer, written by a gap-year student when receiving her own results was still fresh in her mind, will be issued on social media on Wednesday, the day before this year’s A Level results are released.
 
Jesus,
Keep reminding me of the bigger picture over the next few weeks,
Keep me in your hands when all other hands disappear,
For I am convinced that neither entry requirements nor exam results,
neither anticipation nor doubts, neither success nor failure, nor any expectations,
neither last minute fears nor anxieties, nor anything else in life, will be able to separate
us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Please, don’t let me forget it!
Amen
