Today sees the start of the Junior and Leaving Cert exams across Ireland. The following prayer is appropriate for the day that is in it.

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
