Prayer of Academic Thanksgiving

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 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.

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 calm, confident in the facts and in my ability,
and firm in the knowledge that no matter what happens today you are there with me.

– A Salesian Prayer

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.

– Sandhurst Youth Ministry

Prayer for Studying

Dear God,
Source of all wisdom,
Help me to use my time
And my intelligence wisely,
As I prepare for exams.
Help me to dispose myself
To listen to your Holy Spirit
So that you, as my loving Spirit,
May place me in a state of prayer
And lead me to understand
That the supreme wisdom
Is knowing I am your child.
Help me to remain serene
So that my work may truly reflect
This profound truth
Mary, Mother of my spiritual life,
Guide me in the ways of your Son,
So that my work may help
To transform this world for God’s glory.
