Prayer For Studying For A Test
Loving Heavenly Father, it astonishes me that I am once again preparing to take an important exam, after having finished my normal education' so long ago. At times I feel that my mind is slowing down and the thought of sitting an exam is quite a daunting task. But Father, You led me in this direction and You have promised to be with me in all things, in every season of our lives. Be with me Lord, as I prepare for this exam and also as I go on to take it.
I thank and praise You that You have given me this wonderful opportunity to forward my career with this course of studies, and I pray that You will be glorified as I move forward in my life and apply all that I have been learning.
Thank You, Father, for being with me up until now. I know that You have promised never to leave me, and to be my strength and stay in all things, for which I praise Your holy name.
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 Jesus, I pray that you would be with me, to enable me to make the final preparations for my Finals. Lord, You have been my helper and my strength throughout this demanding programme of studies, and I pray that You will be close to me as I face the challenges that lie ahead of me as I approach the end of my time here.
Grant me the strength to face the inevitable pressures that will arise as I prepare for my final exams, and guide my studies as I prepare for this important period of my life.
Keep my mind focussed on what is important. Help me not to become distracted by peripheral activities or people, but rather help me to stay my mind on these exams and manage my time in a wise manner.
Lord, my life and my future is in Your hands. I pray that I may do well in these exams and may all I do in these exams be honouring to You. I will not fear, knowing that You have promised to hold my right hand. In Jesus' name I pray,
O Mary, Mother of fair love, of fear, of knowledge, and of holy hope, by whose loving care and intercession many, otherwise poor in intellect, have wonderfully advanced in knowledge and in holiness, thee do I choose as the guide and patroness of my studies; and I humbly implore, through the deep tenderness of thy maternal love, and especially through that eternal Wisdom who deigned to take from thee our flesh and who gifted thee beyond all the saints with heavenly light, that thou wouldst obtain for me by thy intercession the grace of the Holy Spirit that I may be able to grasp with strong intellect, retain in memory, proclaim by word and deed, and teach others all things which bring honor to thee and to thy Son, and which for me and for others are salutary for eternal life. Amen.
Holy Spirit, Giver of all good gifts, enter into my mind and heart. Give me the gift of knowledge and the grace to use it wisely. Help me in all my endeavors. Give me perseverance and fortitude. Help my memory, that I may remember what I learn and recall it when necessary. Guide me in the classroom. You who are the Way, the Truth, and the Life, let me not be deceived by false teaching. Our Lady of Good Studies, pray for me. Amen.
Incomprehensible Creator, the true Fountain of light and only Author of all knowledge: vouchsafe, we beseech Thee, to enlighten our understandings, and to remove from us all darkness of sin and ignorance. Thou, who makest eloquent the tongues of those that want utterance, direct our tongues, and pour on our lips the grace of Thy blessing. Give us a diligent and obedient spirit, quickness of apprehension, capacity of retaining, and the powerful assistance of Thy holy grace; that what we hear or learn we may apply to Thy honor and the eternal salvation of our own souls.
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
