The biggest challenge that every licensed professional has faced is the board exam. It is never easy to deal with stress and anxiety during the review period as you wait for the examination day.
Some may feel down and hopeless in the process of preparing for the exam. But don’t let it take your determination away. Just trust yourself and keep going. Always remember to ask for guidance and strength from God to help you overcome all your struggles. It is a tough journey that is worth taking the risk. Whether you pass or not, what matters is you do everything that you can.
Calm your mind and be more inspired for your upcoming board exam or during your review with these prayers. (Read: Prayer Before Study by St. Thomas Aquinas)
Prayers for Board Exam And Review
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 focused and calm, confident in the facts and in my ability,
and firm in the knowledge that no matter what happens today you are there with me.
Prayer for Preparation to Study
Lord, I know you are with me and love me.
Give me peace of mind as I prepare for this time of study.
Help me to focus on my books and notes,
keep me from all distractions so that I will make the best use
of this time that is available to me.
Give me insight that I might understand what I am studying,
and help me to remember it when the time comes.
Above all, I thank you for the ability to be able to study
and for the many gifts and talents you have given me.
Help me always to use them in such a way
that they honor you and do justice to myself.
Prayer for Successful Testing and Exams
Lord Jesus, You know that I am very anxious about the tests and exams that I have to face very soon, and ask that You would calm my anxious, clouded thoughts.
Please calm these nerves that I have, and let me rest in You always.
I pray that as I enter the exam, that You will fill my heart with perfect peace that only comes from You.
Please also give me clarity of thought, and prompt my mind to remember all the things that I have studied.
Give me the wisdom and the ability to transfer my thoughts to paper.
It’s in Your precious name I pray, Amen.
