Oftentimes, Christian students who are about to sit for an important examination do not need just tutorials and studies, but also prayers.
Proverbs 16:3 KJVCommit thy works unto the Lord, and thy thoughts shall be established.
A genuine Christian knows that they cannot achieve academic excellence without God's help. It's no new news that the enemy attacks a Christian's academics. The enemy fights every good thing that tends to happen in the life of a Believer—just because he doesn't want any child of God to make it or become great in life.
The need to put God first in all our life endeavours cannot be overemphasised. Every project which is committed into God's hands often comes out successful. To some of us, prayer is our lifeline; we literally cannot survive without it. Failure to commit everything we do into God's hands may produce the undesired results.
Although the Bible instructs us to trust completely in the Lord (and lean not on our own understanding), I also want to stress that some Christians tend to take this too literal and end up misinterpreting and misapplying it.
Proverbs 3:5-6 KJVTrust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.  In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
Prayer is powerful but it shouldn't be used as a substitute for being studious and industrious in school. It is good to pray against making terrible mistakes in the examination room, but that will not replace being diligent when writing our exams.
God has His responsibilities in our life, but that doesn't replace our personal responsibilities. There are things that God will do for us and there are other things God expects us to do for ourselves.
God can answer our prayers by giving us retentive memory to recall what we had been taught or what we studied before our examinations, but He will neither attend classes on our behalf nor study for us.
As students, the Lord expects us to take responsibility and do our part towards the success we look forward to in our academics. Achieving academic excellence is something we should work towards — together with God. Prayer is therefore not an excuse for laziness. The efforts we make towards our academics will always determine our grades at the end of the day.
Short Prayer Before Exam
Here's a brief prayer you can say just before starting the day's paper:
Thank You Father for the spiritual wisdom, knowledge, understanding and retentive memory which You have given me. Holy Spirit of God, as I am about to start writing, I ask that You bring to my remembrance all that I had studied for this paper. Enable me to write and pass this course/subject with flying colours, in Jesus Name. Amen.
A prayer before exams is suppose to be properly and effectively said. It's always better to spend quality time in prayer for our examinations than rushing to say a short prayer just before writing.

Prayer For success In Exam Results
The enemy sees those who have a great destiny. And the sad reality is that he begins attacking this category of people even from a very tender age. You'll notice that it is often towards their examinations that most Christian students will begin seeing terrible dreams concerning their forth coming examination result. That is why it is wise to pray effectively concerning your examination results (before and after your exams).
Since the enemy is always scheming and plotting, a Christian also shouldn't slack in prayer. If you see bad dreams concerning your exam results, the solution isn't to become scared but to pray.

Powerful Prayer To Pass An Exam For A Friend
It's a right thing to pray for others; it's a valid sign that we love them. Christians aren't suppose to pray just for themselves but also for other people. While you're praying for success in your examinations, you'll do well to also pray for that of your friends as follows:
- Father, I ask that You give my friend retentive memory to study, retain and reproduce in their exams, what they had been taught, in the Name of Jesus Christ.
- Lord, I ask that You give my friend the ability to recall all that they had studied for their exams in the name of Jesus Christ.

- I decree and declare, failure is not their portion. Every attempt of darkness to bring failure to my friend during their exams, be destroyed in the Name of Jesus Christ!
- I cover my friends and their exams papers with the blood of Jesus. Every manipulation of darkness against them is thereby aborted in the Name of Jesus Christ!
- Father, grant my friend the ability to read and understand every question, and answer them accurately in the Name of Jesus Christ.
- My friend shall come forth with flying colours in their examination result, in the Name of Jesus Christ!
