Here’s a college acceptance prayer to help you ask for God’s guidance and help in finding the right college.

College Acceptance Prayer

Dear Jesus, I pray for your help and guidance in being accepted into college.  I have a dream in my heart of being able to go to college so I can build toward my future.  I have this particular college on my mind for the following reasons….

I pray that you will be in every detail of the application process, including helping me meet the deadlines and helping all of the required recommendations and test scores arrive safely.  Please guide me as I fill out the application to be able to express myself well so that those reviewing my application will see my potential.

I pray that you will be with me daily as I wait to hear back on the admission decision.

Sometimes I feel confident because…

Sometimes I’m really worried because…

Help me to dare to ask someone else to pray for me about this college application and for my future.  Please bring one person to my mind I can ask to pray about this…

I thank you that you promise in the Bible, “For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.’” (Jeremiah 29:11)  Please give me a bigger idea of the kinds of plans you have my future.  And help me to trust you and ask for your guidance in finding a better alternative if I’m not accepted where I want to go.  I ask these things in the name of the Great Teacher, Jesus Christ.  Amen.
