Lord, Jehovah, God of Healing, we come to you today, to lift up a dear one who needs You.
You knit each of us together in the womb. You know every cell in our bodies and the whole path of our lives.
Nothing comes as a surprise to You, Creator God of all things.
You are not bothered by technology, or our time table. You already know the grace that this dear one needs today, tomorrow, and in the future.
You already know the outcome of this situation, and are prepared to meet every need.
Oh, dear Abba, this dear one needs to know that and feel that today. To know that before this medical problem even came up, that You were already there, preparing the way, physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually.
Dear Father, it is so hard not to lean on our own understanding. We try to plot every possible scenario, and fix everything. We are so frail, and so human.
Yet all this time, Lord, You have been carrying this dear one. There is nothing to plan, to fix, to figure out. When you are in the Shepherd’s arms, you do one thing – rest!
Lord Jesus, help us all to “be still and know that you are God.” The God of our cells.
Lord, You confound the wise. Right now, what seems like an undeniable, scientific medical fact, is an opportunity to confound the wisdom of science with a good result on this medical test. We pray for that.
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.
