Prayer for all sitting exams
Be with me as I take this exam
Keep my mind alert and my memory sharp
Calm my nerves and help me concentrate
I know that you walk with me, guiding my path and inspiring my heart
I pray that I will feel you with me and that your friendship will soften the pressure I feel
I pray that I will pass this exam and go on to new things with you
Thank you for your peace and love in my life
Thank you for your kindness and care for me.  Amen   (Anon.)
