Prayer For Exam Success

Lord, I know you are with me and love me.
Give me peace of mind as I prepare for this time of study.
Help me to focus on my books and notes,
keep me from all distractions so that I will make the best use
of this time that is available to me.
Give me insight that I might understand what I am studying ,
and help me to remember it when the time comes.
Above all, I thank you for the ability to be able to study
and for the many gifts and talents you have given me.
Help me always to use them in such a way
that they honour you and do justice to myself. Amen

O St. Joseph of Cupertino who by your prayer obtained from God to be asked at your examination, the only preposition you knew. Grant that I may like you succeed in the (here mention the name of Examination eg. History paper I ) examination. In return I promise to make you known and cause you to be invoked.
O St. Joseph of Cupertino pray for me
O Holy Ghost enlighten me
Our Lady of Good Studies pray for me
Sacred Head of Jesus, Seat of divine wisdom, enlighten me.

O Great St. Joseph of Cupertino who while on earth did obtain from God the grace to be asked at your examination only the questions you knew, obtain for me a like favour in the examinations for which I am now preparing. In return I promise to make you known and cause you to be invoked.
Through Christ our Lord.
St. Joseph of Cupertino, Pray for us.

Dear Lord! How dearly You love me! You completely gave Yourself up for me because of Your love for me! Thank You, Lord. I love You Father; I love You with all my heart, my soul and my mind; please look down with mercy on me as I come to Your feet praying for success in my exams. Lord, the Bible says that the horse is made ready for the day of battle, but victory rests with the Lord! As I prepare for the exams, please give me the treasures of wisdom and knowledge which belong to You.

Give me a heart of wisdom and understanding too. Fill me with your spirit of wisdom just as You made young Daniel ten times wiser. Lord, You are a wonderful Counselor and magnificent in Your works! Give me good counsel during my exams and teach me the lessons I have to study and how to prepare well. Give me sharp memory, so that I can retain all that I have studied in my mind. As you were with Joseph and made him successful, be with me and make me successful. Jesus, You have promised, Surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age; I will never leave you nor forsake you.' Be with me during the time of exam and help bring to my memory all that I have studied; give me the grace to write the correct answers for each of the questions given and complete my exam within the stipulated time. Grant me favour in the eyes of those who correct my answer sheets. Father, during my exams, give my family and me good health, free from any exigencies. Give me a calm mind that trusts in You.

Father, I thank You and praise You for making me victorious in Christ and honoring me by giving me great success in the exams. I pray in the mighty Name of Jesus and God the Father, Amen!

Heavenly Father,

Only your peace can sustain me through the anxiety and stresses of exam nerves. Your peace surpasses all understanding. I ask for this gift and choose to lean upon you at this time.
Lord, come and remind me of your unfailing love.
Remind me that you hold me safe, you understand me, and you cherish me.
I lay down my fears before you.
I leave them at the foot of the cross, for you have overcome the world.
I choose to give you all my concerns, worries and fears of failure.
I trust that your loving hand will hold me through these exams and lead into a bright future.


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.


Be with me as I take this exam.
Keep my mind alert and my memory sharp.
Calm my nerves and help me concentrate.
I know that you walk with me,
Guiding my path and inspiring my heart.
I pray that I would feel you with me,
And that your friendship would soften the pressure I feel.
I pray that I would pass this exam and go on to new things with you.
Thank you for your peace and your love in my life.
Thank you for your kindness and care for me.
