Dear Lord Jesus, I thank You with all my heart that You have heard and answered my request for a scholarship, so that I may continue my studies, for which I praise and thank You. Lord, it is such a thrill to know that I have been awarded this scholarship and I pray that I will work conscientiously and hard for the duration of the course, and emerge having done my best.
Lord, I really do just want to thank You with all my heart. I know that there are many times that I have not shown the gratitude and thanks that You deserve, for all good things come from You, and I remember that only one of the ten lepers returned to say, ‘thank you’, and I don’t want to be numbered in the camp of those that are ungrateful.
Help me prepare myself for this new course of study and help me I pray, with all the preliminary preparations that I need to make before I go, as well as tying up any loose ends so that I do not dishonour You in any way, Thank You again Lord, and I pray that You will be with me every moment of this course of study and that in all things I may be a good and faithful witness to Your goodness and grace. In Jesus' name I pray,
