Are you making plans for a scholarship abroad? This prayer might just be all that you need for that dream to come through!
Prayers are very essential in every aspect of our lives; spiritual, physical, academic, social. In our pursuit for success, we should not forget to commit our intentions, aspirations and planned actions to God. It is God’s will that we should have all good things of this earth, “A person can do nothing better than to eat and drink and find satisfaction in their own toil. This too, I see, is from the hand of God, for without him, who can eat or find enjoyment?” (Ecclesiastes 2:24-25). And remember, “I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven” (Matthew 16:19). Everything that happens here on earth has its implication in heaven. So, you should always bring God in with every plan you make.
As one aspiring to study abroad on scholarship, make this prayer to God trusting that He would guide you through acquiring the scholarship successfully and through your journey afterwards:
“Dear God, you know that I have applied for a scholarship so that I can complete my studies and I ask Lord that I may find favour in the eyes of the panel who makes the decision on awarded offered this scholarship, knowing that it seems to be the only way that that I will be in a position to finish my schooling.
Lord, I think that there are different levels of scholarship awards and I am praying that I may be granted the full scholarship, not only the tuition fees but the accommodation and other hidden expenses that inevitably come in a study program.
Lord God, I know that I am asking for a miracle but I also know that you are a God of miracles. You are a God of the impossible, and I give this request to You and pray that I would find grace and favour in the eyes of the selection committee. Thank You, Lord, for hearing my prayer and I offer my life to You Lord, to Your praise and glory. In the name of Jesus, Amen”.
