Finals are here!
« on: May 21, 2010, 01:13:06 PM »
For me at least...

Oh, here comes the stress! Here comes the pressure! Here comes the cramming! Here comes the anxiety  :'(

Here comes the prayers! Pray for me please. This semester is worrying me more than the last. And thanks for your prayers.

God bless.

ps (wow I really should be studying)- Is the prayer of a righteous person for someone in need better than that person who's in need's prayer...ok scratch that.

Person A - righteous person
Person B - practicing sinner, but still Christian

Would person A's prayer that Person B do well for an exam be better than Person B praying that he do well? (Option 3 of my poll inspired this q).

Lord, have mercy!
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.
—St. Isaac of Syria

Best of luck!
