A Prayer At Exam Time .
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 am being asked
and to recall the study and work I have put in so far.
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.
