I come before you today in need of help. My dream is to attend the United States Military Academy at West Point. I have come very far in the process. I know it is you who has helped me come this far. But now there stands an obstacle. I qualify academically and physically, but my eyesight has disqualified me medically. Now I must hope that either a mistake has been made or get a waiver. I know you have millions of people asking for your help everyday, but I need a sign of hope.
I came out of my period of depression with your help, and I know this is the path you have chosen for me, for I would not have made it this far without you. I have almost reached my dream, please help me get the rest of the way. I know you are with me. I have full faith in you. So I ask for hope.
In your name I pray, Amen.
