Yesterday, I had the privilege to say the opening prayer at my school's baccalaureate. It was a bitter sweet moment because I have yet to know my outcome of a very important test tomorrow, but I knew I needed to follow through with this. I am having faith that the Lord will have His way and that whatever the outcome may be, it will be in His hands. I have studied all that I can and taken as many practice tests that I could. It is up to the Lord! So here is my final prayer for the seniors and for this week as I go into some crucial exams...

Lord,

The journey you have brought each one of us on is more than we could have ever imagined. As the class of 2011, we have shared a multitude of laughs, a handful of tears, and an overabundance of memories. David said in Psalms 118:5&14 that “In my distress, I prayed to the Lord and the Lord answered me and set me free. The Lord is my strength and my song; he has given me victory.” Just like you were David’s strength and you gave him victory, I know you have and will do the same for each one of the seniors who will walk across the stage next Saturday and receive their future blessing. Lord, I thank you for being our guide and for allowing Oklahoma Wesleyan University to bless each of us in a way that is individually designed for each person. God, this is where we continue our journey. This is not a stopping point for us but just another step into the plan you have etched out for each us. For blessed are those who believe when there is no evidence of an answer to prayer – who trust beyond hope when all means have failed. Beloved Father, you have never failed to act but in goodness and love. Your love has always prevailed. I pray we hold fast to our faith and stand fast in your word. I pray we live for today. We live to honor You and let You lead. I pray that your blessing will be upon each of the graduating seniors and that there impact will forever plant seeds in the people who follow after.
