A Prayer Before a Test

It's natural to pray before difficult situations, and many people find comfort (and stress relief) in prayer before an exam or test. Jesus himself went through stressful and difficult things in his life, which were obviously much more difficult than a test. However, as one who was and is fully human, he can understand our anxiety about a test, so this prayer before a test is addressed to him.

pencil and paper Lord Jesus,
You understand the difficulties humans face,
and the pressure I'm under right now.
I ask that you guide me as I take this test,
so that I may do my best.
Open my mind,
Clear my thoughts,
Relax my mind and body,
And grant me perfect concentration,
So I may use the knowledge I have gained,
To build up your kingdom,
For the good of all. Amen
