How God Helped me through Practical Exams

Praise The Lord! I hope everyone is doing well in Christ! I want to share my testimony that proves Jesus, our wonderful God and Father, undoubtedly helps us at all times! With God, everything is possible.

Jesus looked at them and said, “With man it is impossible, but not with God. For all things are possible with God.” – Mark 10:27 ESV

So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. – Isaiah 41:1 NIV

My CBSE 12th board practicals started on Jan 24th. The day before practicals (23rd), we had our school farewell. By God’s Grace, it went great! After reaching home from school that day, I felt weak. My body started heating up. I had a high fever. I could not revise properly for the practicals that entire day.

My first practical was Psychology. By God’s Grace, I was able to revise two psychological tests thoroughly before farewell. I had 3 psychological tests left to revise after farewell. I was worried. All I could remember was that my body was heating up even worse at night, and my mother and grandmother were beside me, crying and praying to Jesus. My parents and my grandmother did not sleep at all.

All my thoughts were this: “My Lord, why did you let this happen? You had promised me this year with the verse Psalm 121:7. Only you can help me, Jesus. Please heal me. Tomorrow, my board practicals will start. Please be with me, Jesus. My success will come from you! I believe in you alone, Jesus. Please wash me with your holy blood, and let this sickness disappear in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen”. I kept saying Jesus’ name and the Apostles’ Creed a few times and slept.

The Lord will keep you from all harm— he will watch over your life – Psalm 121:7

Around 3:30 AM, My father had called the 24-hour prayer help from Jesus Redeems Ministries. (At some point, we need prayer help from others. Whatever time it is, you can call them, and they are always ready to pray for you! English- 00914639220000)

After praying, I felt peace in my heart. I was firm in faith that Jesus healed me. Around 5:30 AM, I woke up, and I was completely fine! Jesus healed me! Praise God! I went to school happily, but at the same time, I was feeling very nervous. I had around 30 mins to quickly go through those 3 psychological tests.

Before entering the exam hall, I prayed,

“Jesus, please come with me to the exam hall. Please go before me, Lord. Please be my knowledge, mind, pen, and heart. Please help me recollect all that you have taught me, Lord. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.”

After being seated in my place, I prayed to Jesus for a good external examiner and a good subject to conduct the tests. Jesus answered my prayers! While taking the chits from the box containing the topics, By God’s Grace, I got those two topics that I had gone through before the practicals! I am so grateful to Jesus! Jesus helped me to write down all that he had taught me.

While coming home, I kept praising God at heart. When I came back home, my mom told me to take rest. After waking up, my body started to heat up again. My parents took me to the clinic. By God’s Grace, It was not a viral infection. I came back home and slept.

The next day was my biology practical. I was very nervous for the Viva. I prayed and went inside the exam hall. God helped me throughout the practical exam. When my turn came for Viva, I prayed, “Jesus, please help me to put my confidence in you. Help me to answer each question, Lord. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen. By God’s Grace alone, I was able to answer the questions.

No matter what you are facing right now, do not be afraid. It might come as huge waves, but nothing can harm you! Jesus is always with you! He will never leave nor forsake you (Joshua 1:5).
