When you’re studying for and taking exams it’s very empowering to pray and claim passages from the Bible to help you stay focused and help you to get in touch with God’s power.  Here is a final exam prayer using verses from the Bible.

Final Exam Prayer Using Bible Verses

Dear God, I ask for your help during final exams based on who you are and the promises that you make in the Bible.

I thank you God that you are the source of all wisdom as it says in Proverbs:

“By wisdom the Lord laid the earth’s foundations, by understanding he set the heavens in place, by his knowledge the deeps were divided and the clouds let drop the dew.”  (Proverbs 3:19,20 New International Version of the Bible.)

Help me to remember that however complex the subject may be that I am tackling, you can enable me to grasp it, understand it and remember the details because you are the originator of all knowledge.

I thank you that you promise to help me when I ask for wisdom as it says in James:

“If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.”  (James 1:5 NIV)

Help me to believe that even as I am praying, you are giving me the wisdom and the help I need.  I  thank you that studying and gaining this knowledge will be beneficial to me as it says in Proverbs:

“He who gets wisdom loves his own soul; he who cherishes understanding prospers.”  (Proverbs 19:8 NIV)

I thank you that although the discipline of studying seems very difficult right now, it will be well worth it as it says in Hebrews:

“No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful.  Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.”  (Hebrews 12:11 NIV)

I thank you that even though I may feel stress and pressure during exam time, it says in Philippians:

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”  (Philippians 4:13)

And finally, I thank you that through the help of the Holy Spirit, I might have the mind of Christ:

“’For who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct him?’  But we have the mind of Christ.”  (First Corinthians 2:16 NIV)

Thank you God that as I have spoken to you, you have spoken to me through your words in the Bible.  Help me to remember them and depend on them during exams.  Thank you for your wisdom, truth and help.  Amen.

Exams are excellence tools for success. Without exams, there can never be progress.

Meanwhile, study have shown that students that read to memorize have lean chances of scaling through their examination more than people that study to understand.

  • Prayers To Attract Divine Favour & Destiny Helpers

Joshua 1:8, ”This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.”

To attain exam success, you must be focus and prayerful. What do you expect from a student who is praying for exam success but always come to classes late, having problem of copying notes from his colleagues. It is absolutely academic failure.

God hate laziness and idleness. He expects every person to work hard and pray. He wants you to have a gainful employment and stop depending on others for your sustenance and existence.

He instructs, through Apostle Paul, “If any would not work neither should he eat.” Laziness and idleness are a great problem before God. No one likes to help a lazy fellow.

God set an example of hard work for us through the creation of the heavens and the earth. Without the hard work of God, this world wouldn’t be a beautiful place.

He did not rest until He had finished with creation. His hard work resulted on the excellence we can see in the beautiful world around us today.

Whenever God is looking for people to commit serious assignment to, He looks for people who will never give excuses for not delivering. He looks for hardworking people because He has no business with lazy bones.

God is in search of diligent and resourceful people who will use all of their strategy to ensure that the work of God suffers no loss.

One of the secrets behind the success of Paul’s ministry is this: he went above winning souls with the same zeal with which he was persecuting the Church before he met Christ.

Many people who are praying for academic or exam success did not even understand the purpose while they are in school in the first place. They are simply frustrated and disappointed.

They have no goals for their lives.They are not after anything because success is not a desire for them.

They are just comfortable with their poor academic status, and that is why there is nothing significant about them.

No performance, no achievement.  They just wasted their years in the university.

Lots of students who are supposed to team up with serious students would be seen hanging out with unserious bones.

And when the time of exam is near, they begin to look for serious students they can share their frustration with. If you are such a fellow, you need deliverance.

As small as ants are, they are very smart and industrious. They work in team to ensure success is recorded in their own ministry.

What exams are you writing?

  1. Is it academic exam?
  2. Is it catering exam?
  3. Is it mechanic exam?
  4. Is it job exam?
  5. Is it Bible school exam?
  6. Is it tailoring exam? etc

No matter the exams you are writing, you shall graduate and you will never come back and write it again in Jesus name. Graduation, progress, promotion, and fruitfulness will be your lots in Jesus name.

Being lazy is not a Christian virtue. It is amazing that some people are still expecting God to grant them exam success when their effort is not at optimal level. It does not work that way anymore.

After the children of Israel had settled in the land flowing with milk and honey and they had eaten the old corn of the land, the manna ceased (Joshua 5:11-12).

Proverbs 22:29, “Seest thou a man dilligent in his business? he shall stand before Kings; he shall not stand before mean men.”

Prayers and fasting alone may not guarantee you exam success, it is also important that you work hard by reading and studying your books. In the same way, divine providence will provoke success on your path. The Bible says, in the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

INSTRUCTION: Embark on 3 days fasting and prayers between 6am to 3pm. Praying using the following Bible verses Genesis 39:1-5, Psalm 119:34-125, Psalm 71:1-7, Daniel 1:10, Eccl 7:11-12.
