Prayer for Students for Exams by the Late His Holiness Saint Pope Kyrillos VI

"I thank You for You have taught me to seek refuge in You in times of need, when You said, "Call upon Me in the day of your trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify Me.""


Now, oh Lord, I appeal to You to give me wisdom and understanding at this time of exams.


Give me grace to pass this test in peace. Grant me Your profound peace and blessing in the time that I am writing my test.


Lord Jesus, I ask of You to find favor in my teachers' eyes for You soften their hearts towards me as they mark my papers. Dear Lord, I am a sinner, and I have not pleased You or myself all year, but I ask You not to treat me according to my sins or the hardness of my heart, but according to Your mercy and sympathy.


Lord, You said, "Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you." So, here I am, asking, and on the gate of Your mercy I am knocking. So, do not refuse my prayer, for you have said: "whoever comes to Me I will never drive away." Answer me, through the intercession of the Holy Virgin and all Your angels. Amen"
