Please pray that I start to understand statistics. I was fine with it the first few weeks but now it is just crazy... I'm trying to use outside sources and the net (oh yeah, the book is horrible too, written by the head of the mathematics department at my university, its incredibly useless) but its not helping much.

Lord, have mercy.

I just had my own run-in with statistics on an exam recently. Fortunately it wasn't the focus of the class, just learning how to use Excel to simulate statistical problems. On the down side, I've got an actual statistics class coming up in a few months.

Lord have mercy.
He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.

Please Jesus, have mercy.
Every day we should hear at least one little song, read one good poem, see one exquisite picture, and, if possible, speak a few sensible words. -Goethe

I once heard a monk say, “The person of prayer does not need to go any further than his own heart to find the source of all violence in the world.” -Fr. Stephen Freeman

Lord have mercy.
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.
