Small Request Not Nearly as Important as most here
« on: September 14, 2007, 09:57:00 AM »
This may sound trivial considering some of the major problems which are expressed here but please bear with me.

Yesterday at university we had a lecture which is the most important lecture in relation to a 2000 word individual essay assignment worth 50% of our total mark for that particular subject this semester.

The essay is due on Monday and a fair number of people are likely to find this stressful and struggle with it so please pray for them.

As a friend of mine in the same course said yesterday (Thursday), You would not want to be sick this weekend!

Please pray for me also although I seem to have a fair grip on this task with thanks due to the Lord's mercy.

Thank you.

It's not trivial.  I prayed my whole way through university!   :)  I know how nerve racking it is. 

May God help you to do your very best!

You'll do fine.  Sometimes, when I think back, 2000 word essays aren't really that bad anymore  ;)

God bless you and strengthen you.

If the faith is unchanged and rock solid, then the gates of Hades never prevailed in the end.

Lord have mercy.
If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

Kinda like my experience...

Been there.  Done that.  You certainly have my prayers.
