Dear Lord, we offer special midweek prayers for students who are wrapping up this portion of their school year. They are writing papers, preparing for exams, completing projects, rehearsing for recitals or concerts, and otherwise are busy and anxious. Some will experience the failures of computers or printers at the most inconvenient moments. Some are experiencing difficult times in their lives apart from school-related pressures. Uphold students during this time, so that they might feel a good sense of accomplishment and then enjoy a time of relaxation following the semester's end. For all your good gifts we pray. Amen.
(The idea of "Hump Day Prayers" came from my college friend's blog "Le Padre Ver Livre," http://jimkane.wordpress.com.)
