Before An Exam
Father, Thank You for your Word that says You’ve given me a spirit of love, of power, and of a sound mind. Not a defective, handicapped, weak or sickly mind, but one full of strength, vitality, and soundness. You have said that I have the mind of Christ. It is written that Jesus grew in wisdom, stature, and favour with God and man.
I believe I have the capacity to learn and to make excellent grades. In Daniels’s life, You caused him to be ten times greater in knowledge than the men of the world. I believe that as I exercise faith in Your Word, the mind of Christ will be working in my life.
As I prepare for this exam, show me what to study and how to study most effectively. May the Holy Spirit cause me to be of quick understanding. Help me to develop the powers of concentration, so I can maximize the ability you have given me. Help me to discipline my mind to think on the subject matter at hand, and not daydream and lazily wander around, so I can get the most from my study time.
Father, as I enter to take this exam, I ask You to help me. Grant me wisdom and show me how to take the test, so that I gain the most points and make the best grade I can make, using the knowledge that I have to the best of my ability.
Help me to stay full of peace. I cast down thoughts of fear and helplessness, and replace them with thoughts of Faith and wisdom.
In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
