Heavenly Father, we have such an anchor in Christ. We rejoice in his wonderful salvation and look forward to the complete restoration of ourselves when he takes us to be with him. Father please strengthen our hope and build up our character as we struggle now with various trials and suffering. Please keep our eyes fixed on him at all times, even in the times of stress and frustration. We ask that the students will have such a focus in the midst of their exams and that their hope will be on display to all those around a them.
