As I prepare for my exams, remind me of your love. Help me to remember that you are my first priority, and secondarily, my exams. Father, I take these exams and lay them at your feet.

Grace Prayer
Jesus, my Savior, I am full of anxiety right now because I’m about to take my final exam. May your grace be sufficient for me during this period.

Please help me to retain everything that I have studied, so that I can be able to use it on the test. As I take time to read and prepare, help me to focus on you and not on my capabilities. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.

Crush My Fear Prayer
Compassionate and Gracious God, I will be taking my exams in a few days, and I am frightened. Please be with me, Lord. Fill my heart with your presence and help me to find rest in your Son, Jesus. Help me to depend on you for protection and guidance. Remind me that I am your child when fear creeps in my heart. Give me strength so that I can take my eyes off myself and focus on your grace. Lord, cover me in your peace and help me to know that my worth is in Christ and not my grade. In Jesus’ name, I believe and pray, Amen.

May your presence fill the examination room, so that peace may reign and I may be strengthened. Thank you for being with me always. If it weren’t for you, I know I wouldn’t have made it this far.

As I leave this place and go to the testing place, I will walk with confidence because I know that you have already blessed the works of my hand, not because I am good but because you are a good Father. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.

Strength to Handle Pressure Prayer
All-Powerful Father, you are my strength and shield. My heart trusts in you, and I am helped. I come to your throne this morning as I prepare to go for my final exam. I ask you to grant me the strength to handle all this pressure that I am under. Father, be at my right hand and cause me to prosper today. Help me to be strong and courageous. Let your peace rule my heart and mind. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.

Endurance when Tired Prayer
Jesus, my Savior of Loving Devotion, be with me throughout my exam today. I have studied so hard and so long. I am exhausted now, and probably on the verge of getting sick. I have given all my energy toward preparing for this exam, and I just need the endurance to make it through the exam before I crash. Please give me the energy to persevere through to the end, no matter how difficult the examination might be. May your hand be upon me so that I may think clearly in my exhaustion, and answer each question correctly. Help me read the questions accurately, and answer succinctly and clearly. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.

Calm My Distress Prayer
Oh Lord of Enduring Faithfulness, thank you for the sacrifice that Jesus made at the scourging post. Come be with me now and calm my fears. I have studied, but am so worried about my upcoming test. It will be a big part of my grade, and I am scared that I am not going to do well. Thinking about this exam is consuming my thoughts and disrupting my sleep. Please keep me physically and emotionally healthy while I prepare for this exam. Remove anxiety from my heart. Let your resurrection power rest upon me so that I can walk in wholeness. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.

Still My Heart Prayer
God in Heaven, I exalt your name forever and ever. You are full of compassion, and your tender mercies are over all your works. Thank you for this season that I’m in. I wouldn’t have made it this far in school without you. God, as we come to the end of the semester, I ask you to be with me as I prepare for my exams. Still my heart from anything that troubles it, and help me to focus on my studies. Let the meditations of my heart be pleasing to you. Help me to walk into the classroom on test day with confidence, because the righteous are as bold as a lion. In Jesus’ name, I believe and pray, Amen.

Good Grades Prayer
Precious Jesus, without you, I cannot bear good fruit in school. May your loving-kindness fill my heart and mind. Help me to look unto you and depend on your grace so that I can get good grades. Please, Jesus, even though I think I will get good grades, help me to remember that the kind of grades I get will not determine your plans over my life. Help me to remember that you have already set good plans for me. Still, thank you so much for giving me the focus, endurance, and strength to study well and do well on my tests. In Jesus’ name, I believe and pray, Amen.

Perseverance Prayer
Everlasting Father, there are so many things I have to do as I prepare for my final exam. I am overwhelmed by the things that I have to accomplish within a short period of time.

In Jesus’ name, I believe and pray, Amen.

Your Presence Prayer
All-Powerful Father, I cannot write my final exams without you. You are my shepherd. With you, I am confident that I will be successful in all that I do. Let your presence be with me when I take my tests. Help me to stand firm in the truth of the gospel in the examination room. Remove any temptation to copy from people sitting near me. Fill me with the joy of your presence because only you can make me successful in all my endeavors. In Jesus’ name, I believe and pray, Amen.

Ears that Hear Prayer
Dear Lord of Enduring Faithfulness, I know I will be successful on my upcoming exams because you are by my side. Lead me with the Holy Spirit to the right topics and chapters to read to prepare for my exam. Remove all distractions from my life and instruct me on how best to prepare.
