Studying and Examinations Prayers
 

Prayer Before an Examination

Dear Lord, as I take this exam, I thank you that my value
Is not based on my performance, but on your great love for me.
Come into my heart so that we can walk through this time together.
Help me, not only with this test, but the many tests of life that are sure to come my way.

As I take this exam, bring back to my mind everything I studied
and be gracious with what I have overlooked.
Help me to remain focused and clam, confident in the facts and in my ability,
and firm in the knowledge that no matter what happens today you are there with me. Amen.

- A Salesian Prayer

Prayer for Preparation to Study

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. Amen.

Prayers Before an Examination

Loving God
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.

In Jesus' Name 

Amen
