Prayer and exams


Does your prayer life get a lot more active during exams? You know, like: ‘Dear God, answers please!’ or, ‘please put my parents in a good mood for that report…’

I’m not sure God answers our prayers for divine knowledge the way we’d like but here are some totally legit things you CAN ask God to do: help you study well, resist distractions, think clearly, help you remember the work and not panic in the exam. Most of all that you know his peace, love and presence as you work.

Prayer is no substitute for studying but it connects us to the One who loves knowledge and understanding – and wants us to have that too. So pray lots!
