I am a teenage girl and am nervously anticipating my upcoming final exams. It is really hard for me to focus right now, especially on davening. When I get to school and settle in to daven, I find myself thinking about all the other things I need to do, and the looming end-of-year events (especially finals!) that are hanging over my head. I know davening with kavanah (intent or mindfulness) is so important, but when I’m really stressed, it’s hard to keep my attention where it’s supposed to be.
