I ask for prayers to protect me and lift me up out of darkness and depression as I approach a critical day of testing. Let the light of G-d break the dark clouds that surround me and help me focus and productively prepare for this watershed day. May His love wrap me and lift me up as I approach this task at which so many wish me to fail. May those who wish me ill be prevented from doing me harm; may those who have been my enemy look at me with peace, generosity, and fairness. May G-d protect me from all ill will, vengeance wishes, and negative energy.
Thank you, G-d, for your unconditional love and grace, for forgiving when I am repentant and for leading, even though I do not always wish to be led. I ask this in the name of Your Son, and through St. Joan and St. Mary. Amen.
