You Go Before Me
(a prayer to say before taking an exam to help calm nerves and stress)

You go before me.
Help me to sleep well, arise with health and to arrive on time for my exam.

You are beside me.
Walk with me, calm my mind and reassure my heart that I have prepared well.

You are beneath me.
Please catch me if I fall, cover my thoughts as I read the questions, calming my feelings if I panic or mind goes blank.

You are above me.
And I lift my eyes to Your goodness, and the promises over my life. Help me to hold onto my dreams and visions, to have faith that I can pass this exam.

In Jesus name,

Prayer for Exam

Come still my heart, O Lord
Calm my nerves and focus my mind.
Father, I lay before you everything I have studied.
May I channel all I have learnt into this exam.
Please give me the faith to believe I can pass this test,
Yet the peace to know that all is well.

Thank you that you are with me no matter what the result,
Thank you that your friendship is eternal.
