Prayers indeed, from one student for another.

The Lord has had mercy and saw it fit that my struggles should pass. I pray for the strength to learn and endure past my mistakes that caused these struggles and thank everyone for their prayers.
The sins I don't commit are largely due to the weakness of my limbs.

Glory to God, and may He always have mercy on you!
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6
