Dare to be an Advocate for Change 

We pray with our Indigenous brothers and sisters that together, we dare to continue to transform our communities and country as we work towards eradicating racial injustice in our society. We pray for the end to racial injustices in our communities and country that we dare to be advocates for change, continue to have compassion for each other, and continue to work towards reconciliation. Lord, Hear our Prayer.

We dare to be advocates for change. Below are some resources from the Anglican Church of Canada to help you become an informed advocate for change.

Prayer of Academic Thanksgiving

Lord God,


Thank you for this opportunity to learn new skills and stretch my understanding.


Thank you for guiding me through this time of study into the final exams.


I lay before you all the hopes and fears I have about the outcome.
May you place a peace within me now as I rest and await the results.


Thank you that I am safely held in your love.


Thank you that whatever happens in the future I will live in your goodness and walk with you always. Amen.

Prayer Before an Examination

Dear Lord, as I take this exam, I thank you that my value
Is not based on my performance, but on your great love for me.
Come into my heart so that we can walk through this time together.
Help me, not only with this test, but the many tests of life that are sure to come my way.

As I take this exam, bring back to my mind everything I studied
and be gracious with what I have overlooked.


Help me to remain focused and calm, confident in the facts and in my ability, and firm in the knowledge that no matter what happens today you are there with me. Amen.
