Moriah, a senior student has a very strong and personal relationship with God, her faith is the driving force behind everything she does. So for her graduation speech, she wanted to credit God and give Him the glory for the woman and graduate she’s become. but to her dissapointment, the school’s adminstrators told her to scrub any reference to God from her commencement speech.

But this brave girl wasn’t intimidated. She stood firm in her faith and got to work—determined not to be silenced for her beliefs. She decided to change her speech quite a bit, and the new version took some guts to deliver. Respectfully, Moriah delivered her speech at graduation—not the original prayer she had hoped to pray, but something even better.

Listen to her encouraging words and be blessed.
