Final Exam :(
« on: December 13, 2009, 10:14:03 PM »
Hello all,

As you may or may not know, I am an aspiring dentist, but I am a sophomore in college. I have a final in my Biology class tomorrow morning at 8.30. I would appreciate any and all prayers. The class has been rough this semester and I would really like to finish strong. Thanks!

In Christ,
Andrew

Best of luck!  I know the feeling.  I have 4 exams in the next week and a half, with a couple of them likely to be fairly rough.

Oops!  I'm almost too late - your exam began at 8:30 and it's now 9:30!

Lord, have mercy!

I pray the exam is one that you know all the answers to!

Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
