My Board Exams Prayers

I have believed that without faith and prayers in anyway, you wouldn’t succeed. So I compiled the novenas and prayers that I did while I was studying for my board exams. I promised to share this to everyone so I’m listing them all down here.

Padre Pio’s Efficacious Novena to the Sacred Heart of Jesus

Prayer of St. Thomas Aquinas

Creator of all things,
true source of light and wisdom,
origin of all being,
graciously let a ray of your light penetrate
the darkness of my understanding.

Take from me the double darkness
in which I have been born,
an obscurity of sin and ignorance.

Give me a keen understanding,
a retentive memory, and
the ability to grasp things
correctly and fundamentally.

Grant me the talent
of being exact in my explanations
and the ability to express myself
with thoroughness and charm.

Point out the beginning,
direct the progress,
and help in the completion.

I ask this through Christ our Lord.
Amen.

Prayer to Blessed Pedro Calungsod

My Lord,

In your grace,
you have shown through your
servant,
Beato Pedro Calungsod,
the sublime prize of following
you;

Through his martyrdom, you
have shown us that age and
race will not hinder us from
serving and loving you;

His youthful fervor in
defending the faith earned him
the title to be called Blessed;

Thus in confidence,
I humbly call unto him to pray
with me, and to intercede for
this urgent favor
(make a request) and that through
his glorious life, I may try
to emulate him, together
with Mother Mary, who
have without reserve said
yes to your will.

Amen.

 

Prayer to Our Lady of Manaoag

Virgin Mother of God, Queen of the most Holy Rosary, thou, who hast chosen to raise thy throne of mercy in Manaoag, to be the beloved protectress and Patron of the Province of Pangasinan, and therefrom to bestow thy graces on us, thy children, banished in this valley of tears, look down with thine eyes of mercy upon me, who am beset with so many dangers of body and soul. Despite not my petition, O dearest Mother, but intercede for me before thy divine Son now and at the hour of my death. Amen.

Virgin of Manaoag, pray for us.

Prayer to Our Lady of Namacpacan

O Blessed Virgin of Namacpacan, we pray that you intercede especially for us, for the sake of your image which you have given for our veneration and edification, in order that we may be saved from famine, pestilence and war.

Make O Loving Mother, the sinful pleasures of this world which would lead us to perdition and death, appear and taste stale and insipid to us, so that we may realize our mistakes and be welcomed back into God’s grace and love.

Obtain for us Mother Dearest, all the graces we aspire for in this life, that we may know and be resigned to the Divine Will throughout our earthly life and thus merit eternal bliss in the kingdom promised by Jesus Christ your Son for ever and ever. Amen. 

(3) Hail Mary

Prayer to St. Jude

Oh glorious apostle St. Jude, faithful servant and friend of Jesus, the name of the traitor who delivered thy beloved Master into the hands of His enemies has caused thee to be forgotten by many, but the Church honors and invokes thee universally as the patron of hopeless cases–of things despaired of. Pray for me who am so miserable; make use, I implore thee, of that particular privilege accorded thee of bringing visible and speedy help where help is almost despaired of. Come to my assistance in this great need, that I may receive the consolations and succor of heaven in all my necessities, tribulations and sufferings, particularly (mention your request), and that I may bless God with thee and all the elect throughout eternity. I promise thee, O blessed St. Jude, to be ever mindful of this great favor, and I will never cease to honor thee as my special and powerful patron, and to do all in my power to encourage devotion to thee. Amen
Hope these prayers help you on your exams and in any problems that you may have. 😉
