Default Please pray for my son and college

My handsome, smart, funny wonderful son has applied and gotten into some really good schools. He's also received some good scholarship money, although not nearly enough to pay for them. He was invited to a Scholarship weekend at one of them, to compete for 2 different fellowships, which would have provided a lot of money should he receive one. We realized tonight the deadline to register was last Friday. He thought it was the 25th. My heart hurts so badly. It is a great school and a really good fit for him if we could get enough scholarship/financial aid for him to go. I have already emailed, and he will too, the person in charge to see if we can still get an interview scheduled for him, but it's doubtful. This is too big a mistake, I would really appreciate prayers for them to have mercy on him and schedule an interview for him. And if that doesn't work, that some other doors will open for him. Thank you so much.

I just saw your prayer request and, although I know it's been days since you requested prayer, I've just stopped and had prayer for you and your son. Nothing is impossible with God and He desires the best for your son!

Thank you for your kind words. Praise Godwe were able to contact the school in time and he is still able to go for an interview this weekend.


Unfortunately, last week he got his financial aid package from a school the other day. They're offering very little (although he got a huge scholarship, there leaves a lot left to pay). He really wants to go to a private, liberal arts type school, but that's not what we can afford. He has decided all hope is lost, all his hard work has been for nothing, no other school will give him any more, and he will have to go to our state school. It's a really good school, though, and he was accepted to the Honors program there, which is a big achievement. It's not where he wants to go. He's so upset and acting like the world has come to an end.😢
