Prayer for the college-bound
« on: August 08, 2005, 01:36:06 PM »
I am beginning my junior year in college.  This year, I am transferring from a low-cost junior college to a much more expensive major university, and it put quite a dent in my pocket book.  I think this is God's way of teaching me not to be attached to material things like money, and also how He is teaching me to be patient with Him and trust Him to provide for me and all of His children.  Please pray that I will have the patience to wait on God while He unfolds His plan for me, and also pray that I may be granted the faith to trust in God as my hope.  Thank you all.

In Christ,

Michael

Certainly I will pray for those things, and I also hope you will pray for me as well, since I also need to learn these same lessons.

In my prayers
If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.
