Student’s Prayer – Exam Time 

 

Lord, I have knowledge, so will you show me how to use it wisely and find a way to make the world I live in a better place, and make life with its problems a bit easier to face.

May I ever be aware in all that I do that knowledge come from learning and wisdom comes from you.

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 that I can.

Holy Spirit, be with me in my exam – and always.

In Jesus’ name. Amen

 

 

 

 

Parents Prayer – Exam Time.

 

The following is a prayer for parents to help them, as they try to support their child through the stress of these exams.

Dear Lord,

I pray for my child and all students about to sit exams.
Help them to keep calm and clear-minded.
Fill them with your peace so that they may be able to make best  use of their abilities, the study they have done and the education they have been blessed with.
Do not let the burden of fear and nervousness prevent them from doing as well as they deserve.  However, teach them not to measure their self-worth by the mark they receive but rather by the effort they put in.
Guide their footsteps when they walk alone, but help them also to be there for each other, supporting and encouraging in the truest spirit of friendship.
Lord, bless everyone today who has given of themselves to these students on their journey, teachers, family, friends and fellow classmates.
Teach them to be thankful, that despite the stress and worry that exams bring, they have this opportunity that many young people all over the world are deprived of. 

May the light of Jesus shine gently on them now and during any difficult times they might face on their journey through life.  Amen
