Prayer for the Week

Blessed Lord, who caused all holy Scriptures to be written for our learning: Grant us so to hear them, read, mark, learn, and inwardly digest them, that we may embrace and ever hold fast the blessed hope of everlasting life, which you have given us in our Savior Jesus Christ; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

  • I was going to respond on the student loan post but became exhausted reading through all of the comments. Instead, I’d rather respond to your prayer which is lovely and reminds me that learning is such a privilege. I am still paying off debt from my first graduate degree while pursuing a second one. I still have debt primarily because of the ridiculous interest rate that was locked in when I consolidated my loans. (Once you consolidate your student loans you can never reconsolidate again). I don’t have a trust fund or husband or parents so yes I live a somewhat modest lifestyle but you know what? One’s education is something that always pays high dividends and to learn about God at seminary is a pearl beyond price. I won’t borrow a cent to do it but it is worth the cost I’m paying even if I can only take a class at a time.
