A Prayer at Exam Time

Published on June 6, 2023

Lord, as I face into examination time,
I turn once more to you,
asking for your blessing and assistance.
I ask you to give me peace of mind
with a strong sense of work at this time.
May I give myself space and time
to revise and prepare to sit my examinations.
Help me to keep focused on this task and
not get too distracted by other aspects of my life.
Keep me from getting into a panic and help me
to do justice to all my work and preparations.
On the days of my examinations,
keep me calm, help me to think clearly and
understand what I’m being asked,
and so to recall the study and work
that I have put in this past year.
Above all, Lord, I ask
that you will allow my efforts to bring about
the life you have planned for me.
May I be open to your vision
of what you wish for me and may I accomplish this
now and in my future life. Amen.
