for my PT test next friday
« on: March 02, 2012, 11:31:24 AM »
Hi all! Please pray for me as I am taking the Army Physical Fitness Test next Friday and I need to pass if I want to get promoted. This has been my one struggle throughout my military career and I really need to pass this test if I am to further my career. Please keep me in your prayers during this next week.

Thank you.

May the Lord be merciful and allow you to pass the test with flying colors!!!
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

Lord have mercy.

St. Michael and St. George, pray for us.
He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.

Lord have mercy.

Also by the way David, thank you for your service.
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.

Lord, have mercy!

Though, do you really want a promotion? I thought you were proud to work for a living?

Just for correction sake (not yours, for you already know this), since I don't want to derail the spirit of prayer on this thread, E-5 SGT is a non-commissioned officer (NCO) rank.
