Super stressed at the moment
« on: October 27, 2012, 01:33:14 PM »
I'm in serious need of prayers right now.

I feel really stressed at the moment. I have a midterm to study for one of my classes that will take place on Monday (if school isn't cancelled because of Hurricane Sandy). I'm running up and down in the house making preparations with my family for the hurricane (I live in NYC) and I have to continue working on a paper for another of my classes that's due next Friday. And I nearly lost my father's car keys and I've been frantic over it for a while (my mom found them but just thinking about the entire situation just sucks). And I have to get ready for work in about a couple of hours.

I'm praying for God to have mercy on me as hard as I can, but I'm still struggling.

lilacs out of the dead land, mixing
memory and desire, stirring
dull roots with spring rain."

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.

Once again, thank you all for your prayers. I'm feeling a whole lot better now that how I was when I posted this. School got cancelled yesterday and today thanks to Hurricane Sandy and now the worst of the storm has passed over my area (I live in NYC). I'm still working on that paper due this Friday.

As usual, I still struggle with the temptations that assault me on a daily basis. So I wouldn't mind a few extra prayers. But everything else seems fine to me so far.

Again, thanks.
