A Prayer for The Future

Loving God,
each day as I step further into my future,
give me the courage, knowledge and
patience that I need on my journey.
Remind me that you always journey with me
and that you will never lead me into anything
that you won’t lead me through.
Thank you for the gift of my life.
May the way I live it be my gift to you –
with your love and guidance
In Jesus’ name. Amen

Prayer Before an Examination

(A Salesian Prayer)

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.

Come into my heart
so that we can walk
through this time together.

Help me, not only with this test,
but the many tests of life
that will surely come my way.

As I take this exam,
bring back to my mind
everything I studied
and be gracious
with what I have overlooked.

Help me to remain focused and calm,
confident in the facts
and in my ability,
and firm in the knowledge
that no matter what happens today
you are there with me always.

Prayer before Examinations (Adrian Porter SJ )

Lord, as I prepare for this examination,
let your strength and your wisdom be present to me.
May I revise my work thoroughly.
May I understand what it is I have to know.
May my memory be reliable and orderly.
May I be calm and focused on the task ahead.
May I know and feel the love and support of my family and friends.
And may you, the author and creator of all things, enlighten me.
Through Christ our Lord.

Prayer when preparing for exams

Loving God
be with me now,
as I prepare for my exams.

Thank you for the many talents and gifts you have
given me and for the opportunity of education.

Calm my nerves and anxiety, help me
to remember all that I have studied,
to express it clearly and to answer questions
to the very best of my ability.

Holy Spirit, sit by me in my exam
– and be with me always.

In Jesus’ name. Amen
