Hey guys, im in my senior year of high school now and im sort of freaking out I have a Major Paper due in a week and a bit and I have a few extra curricular activities coming up and im nervous and scared i wont do well in either.
Can anyone give me a verse, a saying of the desert fathers or anything in that line that will help me relax when i freak out?


  • Proverbs 3:5-6
    "Trust in the LORD with all your heart,
    And lean not on your own understanding;
    In all your ways acknowledge Him,
    And He shall direct your paths."

    As for stressing... Wait 'til you start uni! ;)
  • "Now, oh Lord, I appeal to you to give me wisdom and understanding at this time of exams. Give me grace to pass this test in peace. Grant me your profound peace and blessing in the time that I am completing my test.

    Lord, You said, "ASK, and it WILL be GIVEN to you; SEEK, and you will find; KNOCK, and it will be opened to you." So, here I am, asking and on the gate of your mercy I am knocking. So, do not refuse my prayer, for you have said: "whoever comes to me I will never drive away." Answer me, through the intercession of the Holy Virgin and all Your angels. Amen"

    -Pope Cyril
