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.
I believe.


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.
