Exams are used in school to measure a student level of knowledge on a particular subject or subjects.

Passing an exam gives a student the chance of success and attaining a level of progress. However, exams encourage people to reflect on and study their coursework.

In order words, exams are organize to prepare people for another phase of life. It forces people to work hard and improve on their knowledge and skills.

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 For Near Success Syndrome
  • 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.

Here are some prayers for your finals starting on next week.  St. Thomas Aquinas is the patron of students, so it is a common practice to ask for his intercession and use prayers that he wrote.

PRAYER OF ST. THOMASprayers for exams

Ineffable Creator, Who out of the treasures of Thy wisdom has appointed three hierarchies of Angels and set them in admirable order high above the heavens and hast disposed the divers portions of the universe in such marvellous array, Thou Who art called the True Source of Light and supereminent Principle of Wisdom, be pleased to cast a beam of Thy radiance upon the darkness of my mind and dispel from me the double darkness of sin and ignorance in which I have been born.

Thou Who makest eloquent the tongues of little children, fashion my words and pour upon my lips the grace of Thy benediction. Grant me penetration to understand, capacity to retain, method and facility in study, subtlety in interpretation and abundant grace of expression.

Order the beginning, direct the progress and perfect the achievement of my work, Thou Who art true God and true Man and livest and reignest for ever and ever. Amen.

Another from St. Thomas Aquinas – patron of students. We used this one in Grad. school frequently.

Grant, O merciful God, that I may

ardently desire,

prudently examine,

truthfully acknowledge,

and perfectly accomplish

what is pleasing to You,

for the praise and glory of Your Name. Amen.

A good prayer to use before studying.

A Prayer before studying for exams.“God of Wisdom, I thank you for the knowledge gained and the learning experiences of the semester. I come to you this day and ask you to illuminate my mind and heart. Let your Spirit be with me as I prepare for exams, guiding my studies, and giving me insight so that I can perform to the best of my ability. Please grant me the strength to handle the pressure during these final days of the semester, the confidence to feel secure in my knowledge, and the ability to keep an appropriate perspective through it all. Help me to keep in mind what is truly important, even as I focus my time and energy on these tests in the immediate future. Finally, may I sense your peace in knowing that I applied myself to the challenges of this day.”


Under thy patronage, dear Mother, and calling on the mystery of thine Immaculate Conception, I desire to pursue my studies and my literary labors: I hereby solemnly declare that I am giving myself to these studies chiefly to the following end: that I may the better contribute to the glory of God and to the promotion of thy veneration among men. I pray thee, therefore, most loving Mother, who art the Seat of Wisdom, to bless my labors in thy loving-kindness. Moreover I promise with true affection and a willing spirit, as it is right that I should do, to ascribe all the good that shall come to me therefrom, wholly to thine intercession for me in God’s holy presence. Amen.

Incomprehensible Creator, the true Fountain of light and only Author of all knowledge: deign, we beseech Thee, to enlighten our understanding, and to remove from us all darkness of sin and ignorance. Thou, who makest eloquent the tongues of those who lack utterance, direct our tongues, and pour on our lips the grace of thy blessing. Give us a diligent and obedient spirit, quickness of apprehension, capacity of retaining, and the powerful assistance of Thy holy grace; that what we hear or learn we may apply to Thy honor and the eternal salvation of our own souls. Amen.

Lastly, a prayer recommended last time I posted prayers for finals:

Prayer Before Exams to St. Joseph of Cupertino

O Great St. Joseph of Cupertino who while on earth did obtain from God the grace to be asked at your examination only the questions you knew, obtain for me a like favour in the examinations for which I am now preparing. In return I promise to make you known and cause you to be invoked.
Through Christ our Lord.
St. Joseph of Cupertino, Pray for us.

Another Prayer Before Exams to St. Joseph of Cupertino

O St. Joseph of Cupertino who by your prayer obtained from God to be asked at your examination, the only preposition you knew. Grant that I may like you succeed in the (here mention the name of Examination) examination.
In return I promise to make you known and cause you to be invoked.
O St. Joseph of Cupertino pray for me
O Holy Ghost enlighten me
Our Lady of Good Studies pray for me
Sacred Head of Jesus, Seat of divine wisdom, enlighten me.

St. Thomas Aquinas pray for all students.

God our Father, as I begin this time of exams, I feel
some anxiety and frustration. Help me to stay focused.

Give me a clear mind to perform to the best of my ability.

Help me to study with dedication and vigor. Grant
me silence so that I may process the knowledge I have
obtained. Let me sleep peacefully at night, so that I am
refreshed and renewed for my upcoming exams.

Be with me, Lord, during this time. Undoubtedly,

there will be moments when I want to quit and give
up. Please sustain me, Lord. Guide me during times of
trouble. Help me to realize that I have done my best
possible work. Let me be satisfied with the work I have
done, but also help me to see areas that I may improve
upon academically in the future. Amen.

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

Dear Lord, as I take this exam, I thank you that my value
Is not based on my performance, but on your great love for me.
