Prayer For Someone Doing Exams
be with me now,
as I prepare for my exams.
Thank you for the many talents and gifts you have,
given me and for the opportunity of education.
Calm my nerves and anxiety, help me
to remember all that I have studied,
to express it clearly and to answer the questions
the very best I can.
Holy Spirit, sit with me in my exam
- and always.
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 honor you and do justice to myself.
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.
Lord, I pray for students who are taking final exams this time of the year, those I know and those I do not know. You alone know how I experienced similar times with a sense of loneliness, challenge, anxiety and stress.
Reach out and touch the hearts and minds of students with a sense that you are will them; with confidence to face the challenge; and with the realization that their anxiety and stress can be a positive energy in their pursuit of excellence.
Give them insight to understand what they have studied and help them to remember it when the time comes.
Help them to keep in perspective the many gifts and talents you have already given them that they may use them for the greater honor and glory of God.
Dear God, I am shortly to face my final exams at the end of this course of study and I pray that You would be with me every step of the way, as I prepare for this daunting landmark in my life.
Continue to be with me in all my studies and coursework, and enable me to retain and apply all that I have learned so that I may be well equipped not only to face these exams, knowing that I have worked hard, but also to be prepared for the future, in whatever direction You should lead me
Dear God, I thank You that You have supported me through this whole course of study, for I know that without You I could never have reached this final hurdle. Be with me I pray, every step of the way and I offer my life to You to do with as You will. In Jesus' name I pray,
Dear God, I have got an exam and I am a bit frightened about exams because You cant talk to anyone.
I know that I can talk to You, but I am not supposed to say anything out loud. Please will You be with me in my heart and listen very carefully when I am talking to You in the exam, because I have to talk in my heart and not out loud.
Thank You for living in my heart. I love You, Lord Jesus.
Lord you are my friend and you are with me today and always.
You have blessed my life with many gifts and talents.
As the exams approach I feel nervous so I pray for your peace.
Calm my mind so that I can think clearly and write down what I know.
Help me to remember what I have learned and to do my best.
Lord your loving presence surrounds me.
Help me to trust that you will guide me.
This is a stressful season, and I'm overwhelmed by the mountain of work ahead of me, yet I trust in you. I know that when I put my faith in you, even when it's as small as a mustard seed (Luke 17:6), miracles can be accomplished. I pray that as I study in these coming weeks, as I soak up knowledge and memorize facts, as I read and process and write, that you would be renewing my mind and strengthening my spirit. Help me to persevere through the massive to-do lists and the busy schedules, and help me to keep my eyes fixed on you throughout it all.
As I enter my classrooms and exam rooms, I pray you would blanket me in your peace. Ease any anxieties, calm my restless mind, and give me focus on the task at hand. I pray that I would know my worth is in you alone, not in any grade I do or do not make, not in any assignment or test or teacher's opinion. I pray that I would fear your presence during my exams, and that I would be comforted by your nearness.
Thank you for the gift of this education, Jesus. I pray that these final exams would be a celebration of all I have learned in this season, and that I would be grateful for all that I have experienced and for all the ways I have grown.
May you be glorified, Lord.
