——James 1:5 (New International Version)
Abba Father, Source of wisdom, we pray for all the children who are appearing for their final examination. Enlighten their intellect, memory, will, mind and senses. Give them concentration in studies, Remove all distractions, dwell in their hearts and guide them in everything. Keep them under your care and protection. Encourage our children when the studies are difficult and when they are tempted to give up. Enlighten them when their brains are tired. Renew Your Holy Spirit in them so that they may remain alert at all times and their brains sharp. In days of academic stress and strain, we pray that you would stabilize our children with your Word and presence. It’s not in us, O Lord. But it’s you who teach us and prepare us for the battles that we face in our academic and work spheres. It’s You who gives us the wisdom, abilities and talents. Give us the grace to use them diligently and to bring glory to your mighty name. We again lift up our children unto you. Let them experience Your love and providence in a new way. Raise them up to a new level of relationship with You. Let them come to this realization that they are Your responsibility and You are more than enough for all their needs and that You are a very present help in times of their needs. Through the grace of Jesus, we pray. Amen.
