for this time of study. / Help me to focus on my books and notes, and keep me free from all distractions so that I will make the best use of this time that is available to me. / Give me insight that I might understand what I am studying, and help me to remember it when exam time comes. / Above all, I thank you for the ability to be able to study and for the many gifts and talents you have given me. / Help me always to use them in such a way that they honour you and do justice to myself.   Amen.
