Starting College


Prayers About Starting College

Kate E. Schmelzer


I have to live with someone I've never met! What will this person be like? Will we get along? Do you think we'll end up good friends? I guess I'll see when school starts. But for now, please be with my roommate—whomever that may be. Please get us both ready for school and for living with each other.

This sounds crazy, so I'm just telling you right now. I think I'm actually going to miss my home, my parents and maybe even my brother and sister. I'm looking forward to being on my own, but I'm worried I'll miss everything that goes on here. Please help me to do what I can to keep in touch with my family.

Dear God,
I'll admit it. I'm starting to get nervous about this whole college thing. Am I making the right choices? If I am, then why do I feel excited and scared? Half the time I'm ready to graduate and try some new stuff. But the rest of the time, I just want to stay where I am. It's comfortable and safe. God, help me to stay calm and remember that you have a plan for me.

Thank you so much for this opportunity to go to college! Everything is fitting into place. I'm ready to go! I'm also ready to learn more and be used by you.
