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.

Omnipotent, Omnipresent Father, we humble ourselves before You, oh Lord, requesting Your Holy presence. Walk beside us Lord, as our exam results are approaching. The work has already been done, we placed our best foot forward, we studied hard, and we have released doubt and fear into Your hands.
Psalm 34:10b Those who seek the Lord lack no good thing.
Psalm 37:3-5, 7a Trust in the Lord and do good; so you will live in the land, and enjoy security. Take delight in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him, and he will act. Be still before the Lord, and wait patiently for him.
Ease the minds of those of us who are thinking that we didn’t study as hard as we should have, dear God. Help us to be reminded that whatever the outcome, You have called us to be the head and not the tail.
Help us to be guided accordingly from thereon if we do not obtain the results we desire, knowing that if we decide to go through with it again, we would do the best that we can, trusting You along the way.
Psalm 62:1-2 – My soul finds rest in God alone; my salvation comes from him. He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will never be shaken.
Give us peace in our hearts, our bodies, our minds, our souls, as we wait patiently and with confidence, knowing that all things work together for good to those that love the Lord. Let worry, fear and doubt flee at the sound of Your great name.
Grant us favor, Loving Father, in the eyes of the examiners. We put our uttermost faith and trust in You to lead us to victory, in Jesus mighty name we pray, Amen and Amen!
Psalm 8 Why are you cast down, O my soul, and why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God; for I shall again praise him, my help and my God. By day the Lord commands his steadfast love, and at night his son is with me, a prayer to the God of my life.
Psalm 46:1-3 God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging.

Exams Prayer before Studies and for Success

A Prayer for KEVIN, for Your Teenager

Prayer text does not always have to be prescribed by someone else. G‑d understands your language too. An appropriate prayer before a major exam would be something along the lines of, “G‑d, please help me pass this exam.” Perhaps you could elaborate on that and explain to G‑d why it means so much to you, or why it’s important for you to do well. It’s always good to get into the habit of praying to G‑d in a manner of talking to Him. You’ll begin to feel that you have a working relationship with Him, and you’re not just always reading a pre-prepared script at set times.
If you’d feel more comfortable having a standard prayer to go along with that, my suggestion would be Chapter 121 in Psalms. The theme of the psalm is the general assistance G‑d provides us, and our success being dependent on Him. It’s short and convenient. I’ve said it on a number of different occasions when I felt in need of some Divine assistance.
Wishing you lots of luck on your test,
