Gearing up for the upcoming board examinations, over 1,000 school students participated in the special ‘Exam Prayer Meet 2014’ organised at the Madras Christian College School here on Sunday.

Leading the students to  pray,  Paul Dhinakaran, founder of Jesus Calls Ministries and Chancellor of Karunya University, said,   “Trust in God and take on the exams, then you shall surely succeed.”

Students, who scored ranks last year, shared their experiences. There were also past students, who are   pursuing higher studies, sharing their secret to score high. The over 1,000 students, studying class X and class XII, were from schools in Chennai, Vellore, Bengaluru, Chittoor and Kanpur taking part in the prayer. The students were given a DVD with a prayer and a pen to write the examinations, which begin in March and end in April.

“We are preparing for the exams but we should also have the blessings of the God so as to pass out in flying colours,” said Mathew, a  student.

Teachers said that they had been making efforts in preparing the students for the test and were also praying for the children.

Earlier, addressing the students, GJ Manohar, principal of MCC School, said that prayers would make the students face the challenge with confidence. Father A Sebastian, correspondent of the school, began the meet with a prayer.
