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 honour you and do justice to myself. Amen
Prayer Before an Examination
How to live, how to pray.I believe that my job is actually a mission, a ministry;
That you have chosen me in this time and in this place
To be there for these kids.
I believe that there is nothing haphazard about my day,
About my experiences with my students or with their parents.
It is all part of your plan.
I believe that you have chosen me, Lord.
Lord you are my friend and you are with me today and always.
You have blessed my life with many gifts and talents.
As the exams approach I feel nervous so I pray for your peace.
Calm my mind so that I can think clearly and write down what I know.
Help me to remember what I have learned and to do my best.
Lord your loving presence surrounds me.
Help me to trust that you will guide me.
