So, it’s been five weeks of being a student again and I’m still here! *whew* Almost every time I talk to one of my supervisors, they say something along the lines of “Glad to see you’re still smiling” and while I’m glad about that too, I have to tell y’all, it wasn’t easy. My first couple of weeks were so overwhelming. My goodness. I haven’t been a student in two years and the transition was a struggle. I was having a hard time keeping up with my readings and managing my time. I felt like I was being chased by my work and I couldn’t outrun it fast enough.
Somewhere around my third week, I got a better handle on things and I’m grateful to God for that. Because the thing is, it’s not going to get any less busy! Y’all should see my schedule. I keep telling myself I love it because I’d rather be busy than idle. However, I also know there’s no way I would make it without Almighty. Which is what led me to write this prayer for college students. From talking to my cohort members alone, I know we’re all feeling like there aren’t enough hours in the day, and I’m sure there are more students like that out there. So if that’s you, this prayer is for you also. God wouldn’t put us in a situation He doesn’t have under control, even if we can’t see that.
I hope you’re able to draw some encouragement from this prayer. Remain blessed.
Prayer for College Students
Sometimes, life as a student gets stressful and when my workload threatens to overwhelm me, I start to get caught up in trying to stay afloat and in the process forget to set apart time with you. Then I remember that your Son charged us to see first your kingdom and righteousness and all other things will be added on to us. I know that if not for you, I will not be here and that you will not place any obstacles in my path that are beyond what I can bear. So whenever I am faced with challenges, I understand that there is always a way out and that way is usually through you. Father, I acknowledge you in all my ways and trust that you are with me every step of the way. I pray that I will find favor on campus with my teachers and colleagues. I ask for your wisdom, knowledge and understanding as I go through this journey. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
