Need prayer for extremely depressing situation
« on: December 09, 2012, 06:22:58 AM »
I accidentally was been made fun by my professor this week and laughed by everyone in class. The worst thing is the lecture has been recorded and everyone from my class can access it. I found out that later the embarrassing part of the video was been cut by an anonymous student from the class and uploaded on Youtube. Too many people have already watched and several bloggers have written posts about it. Before the video was been uploaded on Youtube, I wasn't feeling too upset and told some people on my floor like an anecdote since I live in my college dorm. However, after the video has been uploaded and watched by more and more people, I started feeling stressed, since this is the first time in my life that I feel Internet can infringe and threaten my life, especially my privacy. When I read people's comments, I felt sad and angry because many people were trying to make fun on me based on seeing their comments. I have even asked the Youtube to take down the clip although I think they wouldn't. people on the floor also laughed; they called me that I am "famous" and "popular," although I didn't really feel good.

Please pray for me so Lord may have mercy on me, a sinner. I don't really know what to do. I feel angry, stressed with other psychological burdens. Pray for me so I may open my heart to forgive the person who uploaded the video and anyone who made fun on me, people from real live and Internet. I need to move on from this since my final exams are coming on next week. Please also pray for me exams.

Thank you so much.

Lord, have mercy on Hurdle. Help him/her to forgive those who ridiculed.
Have mercy, also, on those who ridiculed, and grant them the insight to recognize the error of their actions.

Lord have mercy on you, and help guide you through these tough times!

May our lord have mercy on the people who did this to you and show them the error of their way

Lord, have mercy!
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.

Until someone does us a grievous wrong, the "deal" we "strike" in the Lord's Prayer, "forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors," doesn't have so much power.

After someone wrongs us, those words have mighty power to set us free from sins, and to be able to enter the heavenly kingdom as we not only forgive but feel a profound love with sweetness of heart, for the one who wronged us.

I wish this blessing upon you, hurdle, that having forgiven, all your sins will be erased, and you will be pure and clean.

It's really quite wonderful. I'm sure this didn't happen by accident!

Lord have mercy on Hurdle.

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.
