A Prayer for College Students Taking Final Exams
Majestic Father, we thank You for our college students. Thank You for giving us the ability to learn and process information. We thank You for blessing us as we take our Final Exams. Thank You for crowning us with wisdom and honor. O God, You are our God; we earnestly search for You. We will praise You as long as we live. We will lift up our hands to You in prayer. You satisfy us more than the richest feast. With songs of joy will we praise You.
Royal Father, as students, we confess that we are well versed in every area of learning; gifted with knowledge and good judgment. Just as You anointed Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego with an unusual aptitude for understanding every aspect of literature and wisdom, that You have anoint us to excel to conquer our Final Exams. We understand the value of knowledge; we understand that wisdom is more profitable than silver and her wages are better than gold. Therefore, we confess that they will not be anxious about these exams, but we will pray and tell You what we need. They will thank You for all that You have done for us; then we will experience Your peace which exceeds anything we can understand. We declare that we can do everything through Christ, including excelling on these Final Exams, because You give us strength. We expect that as we study and apply ourselves, that Holy Spirit, You will bring all things to our remembrance when they sit down to begin our Final Exams. We decree that we are the head and not the tail; we will always be on top and will never be at the bottom academically!
Holy Spirit, please help us to hunger and thirst after knowledge. Help them to shed every false label, expectation and preconceived notion that society has placed upon us. Help us to see ourselves as more than conquerors in every aspect of our lives. Holy Spirit, please encourage and help our parents and guardians as they support us financially and pay our tuition. Please open new revenue streams for our parents. Lead and guide us to scholarship and grant opportunities to help pay for our educational expenses.
Loving Father, forgive us for all acts of sinfulness. Forgive our parents and guardians for being negligent in teaching us to first reverence You which is the beginning of wisdom. Forgive us our nation for not being more insistent on quality education in our school systems. Father, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed). Holy Spirit, remind us all of those they need to forgive and help them to be quick to forgive. As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to reveal names or faces of people that you may need to forgive. As He reveals them, say, “I forgive name of person(s).” Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)
Holy Spirit, help us all not to yield to temptation but deliver us from the evil one.
Awesome Lord, Your right hand is glorious in power. Your right hand smashes the enemy. In the greatness of Your majesty, You overthrow those who rise against You. You unleash Your blazing fury; it consumes them like straw. Who is like You among the gods, glorious in holiness, awesome in splendor, performing great wonders? You are God alone! In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
