St. Rita, Saint of the Impossible,
bring serenity to my mind and heart
while I take my exams.
Give me a quiet confidence
in my gifts and talents.
Remind me of my dignity
in a world where we compete in exams,
for jobs, for a place in life.
Anoint my memories with
the power of recall.
Keep me calm on the day of my exams.
May my results be for enrichment
of my life and the education of my heart.
We ask this prayer
through Christ our Lord
