A couple of prayer requests
« on: November 27, 2011, 03:07:13 PM »
Hello, all. I have a couple of prayer requests.

First of all, I'm going to be driving back to college later today. It's about 220 miles or a 4 hour drive. I'd like to pray that God keeps me safe and alert and that the traffic is light.

Secondly, I have issues with anxiety every now and then. I worry about all sorts of things, even when there's nothing to worry about. Sometimes it carries into what we might call scrupulosity. I'd like to pray that God is with me, soothes these feelings, and gives me the guidance to get through my anxiety when it arises.

May the Lord have mercy upon you, grant you safe travels and peace of mind!

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.

Lord have mercy!
To God be the Glory in all things! Amen!

Only pray for me, that God would give me both inward and outward strength, that I may not only speak, but truly will; and that I may not merely be called a Christian, but really be found to be one. St.Ignatius of Antioch.Epistle to the Romans.

Well, I made it back fine. Managed to survive three instances of traffic and a very minor rear-ending (I'm fine and there's no real damage to the car). I believe God was watching over me because I managed get through it all relatively fine. Thanks for the prayers everyone. :) As for the anxiety, I've been dealing with it off and on for a while now. It's nothing new, but continued prayers are appreciated.
