Prayer for my Seminary Friends taking finals right now

May this be your heart today ... and this weekend as you study ... or when you feel stressed because you're not studying ... and at 3 a.m. when you're still cramming ... and at 5:30 a.m. when you're still cramming ... and as you fill up little blue books and your hands cramp and your minds go blank and you crash for an hour after a final but then race back to the books because you've got to get that one more Greek word and read one more digest and exchange one more study list ... (oh yeah, it's all coming back to me!)

Paul worshipped while he was writing this; may you worship while you study it:

"Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God!
How unsearchable his judgments,
and his paths beyond tracing out!

"Who has known the mind of the Lord?
Or who has been his counselor?"

"Who has ever given to God,
that God should repay him?"

"For from him and through him and to him are all things.
To him be the glory forever! Amen."

Romans 11:33-36
