A Mother’s Prayer for a child doing exams

I know that you have worked hard and studied

I know that one final exam can seem unfair
to show the sum of your worth.

I know that you are nervous
I can sense it,
even behind your smile and assurances that you are ok.

I know that you are tired and that
words are blurring on the page,
so sometimes a break from the books
is the best thing to do.

I know that you are doubtful
of finishing long papers in time.

I know that you are hopeful
for favourite poems coming up.

I know that you are ready.
I have watched you for six long years.

I know that the hard part is waiting
for the first exam to start.

So, I am praying for the nerves to settled
as soon as you pick up your pen.

I am praying for the answers t come to you
as soon as you see the question.

I am praying for Plath and McCarthy
as topics in English and History.

I am praying for enough time for you
to get it all down on paper.

I am praying for strength and endurance
to get through the next few days.

I pray that you talents will shine through
and that your words and efforts will
inspire generosity in the examiner.

I pray for perspective
for the knowledge that in the long run
this won’t be what defines you in the world.

I pray for gentle and untroubled sleep
for you on the nights before your exams.

I pray that you will always know
how much you are loved, cherished
and valued in our family and in the wider world.

I pray that you will have faith that all will be well.
