Need some prayers
« on: March 03, 2012, 03:07:50 AM »
I am a college student who is on Pre-med track. I have pretty hard classes to take and they seem quite hard to me at least now. I do not have confidence on myself and dislike the instructors who teach the courses. However, I really need good grades for those classes because they will matter the time when I apply medical school. I had 3.8 GPA until a C in a Biology course last master. I really want to work hard, but I feel I am not well motivated. I tend to be stressed out and anxious all the time.  I pray to God and hope He can help me on this semester. I also have tons of problems I have to deal with my life and hope Lord will guide through all those these matters/situations.
I am not yet an Orthodox and also quite unsure whether Orthodoxy is right for me or not. I stopped attending the Saturday meeting that's associated with "my church," because I don't really feel they benefit me spiritually. There is also no orthodox group on campus (there is a Coptic one, But I am more interested in Eastern Orthdox that Oriental Orthodox. No offense.)
My dad is also on the process of green card application for him, my mom and myself. Permanent residence status will help me a lot and I really hope all my family members, including me will obtain the status successfully. I hope the application will be approved before 21st birthday or else I will have apply the green card by myself.
Sorry to bring up so many matters.Please pray for my study, faith, family and future. I appreciate any prayer.

Atheists have noetic deficiencies.

Don't believe everything you think.

In the tradition of the Jesus Prayer - Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me - a sinner
Jesus Prayer : the invocation of the name of Jesus, most commonly, 'Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me' , although there are a number of variant forms. Not merely a technique or a Christian mantra, but a prayer addressed to the person of Jesus Christ, expressing our living faith in Him as Son of God and Savior.

Lord have mercy.

Also, welcome to the forum. :)
Psalm 37:23 The Lord guides a man safely in the way he should go.

Prov. 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.
