Tomorrow and the few days after, I'll be taking my final exams for the semester. Would appreciate prayers at this point.

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

Lord, have mercy.
You are right. I apologize for having sacked Constantinople. I really need to stop doing that.

I've got the typical slate of finals and papers due in the coming days as well. Next week is finals week for me, so I second the prayer requests here.

Lord have mercy on GTAsoldier, and Irconchapman.
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.

I'm very curious about the "Christian Marriage" course. Anyway, six courses in one semester sure is impressive. I'm dreading having to take five next fall.

That is the only way realistically to graduate.  We call them "four year degrees" but that is a euphemism.  The average is 5 years, many people take six.  The only way to actually get all the requirements done in exactly four years is to take every single term available (which is impossible because at upper division level there are rarely summer/winter session courses available) or take 5-6 classes a semester for every regular session term.  I did 5 and 6 to get it done in five years, but I had to miss a semester to transfer into the university.  College isn't what it used to be.  It is both more intensive and cripplingly expensive  :-\
