Prayer for Success in Exams

Hey Pioneers!

 

I know midterms are probably underway (or about to be), but try not to stress too much! Trust in God, do your best, and He will take care of the rest! I know what you may think: “Easy for her to say! She doesn’t have midterms right now!” Well, I’ve been there, trust me. I know it’s so easy to get lost in the stress and worry. But I also know that dedicating time to prayer and trust in God through all the hardship is the answer, because it is what got me through the tough times in school.

Here is your meditation for the week: 

Prayer to St. Joseph of Cupertino for Success in Examinations

Pioneer Catholic Schedule & Meditation: Sept. 25-29

Happy Sunday, Pioneers!

 

I know the semester isn’t getting any easier, but don’t forget to take time to relax and breathe. Saint Padre Pio said, “Pray, hope, and don’t worry. Worry is useless. God is merciful and will hear your prayer.”

Worrying only makes things harder. Do your best, and God will take care of the rest. Pray, and He will help you!

I have two meditations for you this week. Click one, or click both. It is up to you!
