Update: Just a little clarification, you don’t pray to St. Joseph to help you pass the exam. You pray to St. Joseph to intercede for you to God to help you pass your exam.

150px-saintjosephcupertino.jpgAll this talk in the blogosphere about people searching for Philippine Nursing Board Exam results made me remember the time I took my own board exam. This was for my Engineering board exam. I passed with flying colors but not without studying my ass off and saying a little prayer to St. Joseph of Cupertino, the Patron Saint for examinees.

It was my mom who taught me this prayer as she knew the stress I was undergoing. The reason behind that was because the exams were nearing and I wasn’t too confident with what my Review School was teaching me. That was after I compared what my other batchmates were learning from the other Review schools. So she slipped me this prayer and told me to pray it for nine days straight and say 3 Our Fathers, 3 Hail Mary’s and 3 Glory Be’s afterwards.

Prayer for a Successful Examination

Oh Great St. Joseph of Cupertino, who while on earth was given the grace of being asked in your examination only the questions you know. Please obtain for me the like favor in these examinations which I am now preparing for. In return, I promise to invoke you and to make you known through Christ, Our Lord. Amen.

Its been about 10 years already, but Thank You Again St. Joseph for helping me pass my board exam. My wife gave this prayer to her sister to help her pass her certification so she could work abroad and she too passed. And yes you can use this for any type of exam not just for major one’s. In return of course, please don’t forget to pass this prayer around in honor of St. Joseph of Cupertino. :D

Update: I just passed my PHP 5 Zend Certification Exam and am now a Zend Certified Engineer. Not bad for only 2 weeks worth of studying, a large part can be attributed to this Prayer, Hard Work (Do your best and let God do the rest) and Faith.

What should you do afterwards? I guess the minimum you can do is to spread this prayer around in honor of St. Joseph. If you want to go further than that, well first, I salute you, for going to the next level of sharing the Grace that you had received from God. I believe that what we have in life all comes from God, and when we give it to those in need, it comes back to us a hundred fold. On my part, I usually have a Thank You Mass said at Church when God had gifted me with a Blessing, aside from that I do other acts of Charity. But please try to do it anonymously and with utmost humility like what Jesus said in the Bible.

Try not to forget also this little blessing from God. So that when you go out in this world you will try to live a moral life. Some choices may be difficult to make, but remember that God always protects and provides for his righteous people. Lastly, kindly remember, that it is our sinfulness that keeps us away from God and the Graces He bestows. But God is always willing to forgive us, if we ask Him to with a contrite heart.

    I thank St. Joseph of Cupertino for his intercession as i slaved over my medical boards last summer, both step 2 ck and cs and was able to pass! what a blessing! I haven’t found a forum to publish and acknowledge thanks but I did send a small donation in gratitude to another mission. I need St. Joseph’s help again to tackle Step 3 next month asking that it will be a resolved issue on my first attempt and asking God to open new doors for residency and employment. IJN!
