For My Final Exams...
« on: January 23, 2012, 10:46:24 AM »
Hello again, guys. Today is the week of my final exams and I humbly ask you all to beseech the Lord on my behalf to overlook my sinfulness and grant me success on my tests, despite all I have done to offend Him. I am studying very hard, hoping for the best. Thank you again, and God bless!
"These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world." -Jesus Christ

May the 21 new martyrs pray for us all.

Please, remember me in your prayers

Lord, protect Egypt, Syria, Lebanon & Iraq.

By the prayers of St. Severus, Lord have mercy on your faithful Servant, grant that he may be motivated to study well, that he may comprehend what he is studying, that he may remember it during his exams so he does well on all of them, that Your Name may be Glorified in him and the labour of his hands always Amen! 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.

Thank you all very much. So far my exams seemed a lot easier than I expected. I take my last exam tomorrow, but I am only slightly worried about that as compared to the ones I took today. Continue to remember me in your prayers my dear friends.

God bless.

I took the last of my exams today. It didn't seem so bad, but I am still somewhat anxious and unsure. I thank you all for your prayers and I ask you all to continue to remember me before the Lord.

God bless.
