A Prayer Before a Test

It seems natural to pray before difficult situations, and many people have found comfort in prayer before a test or exam. Jesus went through stressful and difficult things in his life which were much more difficult than a test. However, as one who is the Logos (reason/Word), 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 am 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
