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.  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 are sure to 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 focussed and clam, confident in the facts and in my ability, and firm in the knowledge that no matter what happens today you are there with me.   Amen
