I fear I may be a little late but I'd just like to share a little something with all those who are taking/have taken exams. There's a nice little prayer that was written by HH Pope Kyrillos VI for students sitting exams, and I'm not sure if it's been posted on these forums before. Sincere apologies if it has been, but just in case I've copied it into this post.
It's in English (I can't take any credit for the translation, that was done by someone else) but if anyone would like the Arabic I can post that as well.
Also, I stumbled upon this little site as well: http://www.erkohet.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=155:popekyrillosviintercessorofstudents&catid=22:subsmnufathersasaintsmenu&Itemid=17
I haven't looked through it properly, but any site that calls HH "the intercessor of students" must be worth a look at! There are so many accounts of Pope Kyrillos performing miracles for students, even in my own family. I might share some of these stories another time, or feel free to share them if you have any yourself!"My Lord Jesus Christ,
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 favour 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"
Again, sorry if this has all been posted before or if everyone already knows about all this, but I thought this would be really useful for students asking for prayers during their exam times.
May God give you every success and blessing according to your heart's desire,
