My student, a new mom
« on: November 17, 2008, 10:39:48 AM »
Please join me in prayer about one of my students, Ashley R., who gave birth to a somewhat premature but generally healthy baby boy last Saturday. The baby was supposedly due in mid-December, after our final exams. Yet, it happened otherwise. :)  Ashley did not file for an incomplete grade, so, unfortunately, she will probably have to take her final exams the week of Dec. 1-5. Please pray that everything goes well for her, she is a very diligent student and a good person.
Love never fails.

Lord, have mercy.
"O Cross of Christ, all-holy, thrice-blessed, and life-giving, instrument of the mystical rites of Zion, the holy Altar for the service of our Great Archpriest, the blessing - the weapon - the strength of priests, our pride, our consolation, the light in our hearts, our mind, and our steps"

Lord have mercy on your handmaid and newly born servant.
