For a hopeful scholarship
« on: February 21, 2013, 09:04:38 AM »
Hello, prayer forum. Here's the situation: I'm a senior in high school, and I have a good, but not phenomenally good, resume. I would really like to go to Loyola University of Chicago. I've been accepted, but even with the scholarship they offered me, tuition is mad expensive. I am, however, a National Merit Scholar, and each year, LUC awards full rides to five of us. I currently have them listed as my first choice with the National Merit Scholar people, which is risky, since I really have no idea who my competition is. So if you could pray for me as they decide to whom they should award these scholarships, I would be grateful. Thank you all. My name is Joseph, if that helps anything.

Lord have mercy!
To God be the Glory in all things! Amen!

Only pray for me, that God would give me both inward and outward strength, that I may not only speak, but truly will; and that I may not merely be called a Christian, but really be found to be one. St.Ignatius of Antioch.Epistle to the Romans.

Lord have mercy on Joeseph.
Psalm 37:23 The Lord guides a man safely in the way he should go.

Prov. 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.

You have National Merit? So I lost to you?  >:(

Well good luck. I myself am banking on a full ride to my university of choice, otherwise I can't go. Lord have mercy.

Lord, have mercy on Joseph, and on those who make the selection.
