Help with school work:

Lord, you are the God of wisdom and knowledge, of love and compassion. I come in the name of Jesus, asking that you will help me do my very best in my school work, understanding and remembering the things that I study. Help me to complete my work on time and to succeed in my examinations. Help me to keep my eyes fixed upon Jesus. Surround me with your peace and your presence - and help me to finish well for your glory. Thank you for your unconditional love -- help me to rest in your loving arms and know that all will be well. Amen.

Choosing the right college:

Lord, I know that I am in the palm of your hands. Thank you for being with me in the past. Help me to keep my eyes fixed upon You and help me to trust You to be with me in the future. Pour out your grace and mercy upon me as I apply to different colleges. Please show me your will for my life. Replace my anxiety with assurance that You are in control. Replace my fears of not getting in with faith that Your plan for me is good. Help me during this waiting process to trust you more, serve you better and love you with all of my heart. Amen.
