I've got some pretty important exams coming up tomorrow. Please pray for me.

Me too, Cyrillic, so not only will I pray, I'll empathize. ;) May God help us both through the prayers and intercessions of Anba Karas, and whoever it is EO ask for intercessions of on these occasions, as well. ;D

May our lord have mercy on Cyrillic, dzheremi and anyone else about to through exams.

Remember, never to fear the power of evil more than your trust in the power and love of God.

It went miraculously well. I thought I was going to fail badly because I started learning way too late (i.e. two days before the exams) and that for maths and geography, my worst subjects, but everything went surprisingly well.

Thanks to everyone for their prayers. Glory be to God for all things.

UPDATE: I got my maths exams back. It was an incredible 7.4/10. Unbelievable. The best note I received for maths ever. I don't need to have any more worries about my exams now.

Glory to God.

Glory be to God in all things! He has once again shown mercy to me, through all prayers and supplications. Thank you, everyone who prayed for the exams. I went into my Linguistic Typology final exam with a 71% (barely a C-; you need at least a B to pass at graduate level where I am studying), and came out of the course with a B+. Granted, it is not quite the same as parting the Red Sea, but in my world right now, it might as well be! :) I am so very glad to hear that you also did well beyond all expectations, Cyrillic. That is wonderful news.

My exams begin tomorrow, I really need prayers.
Not everything I type or have typed in the past is reflective of the teaching of the Orthodox Church, or may not reflect my contemporary views on a subject. (5/30/2015)

I am scaling back posting because the crack in my computer screen makes it harder and harder to type.

Congratulations.  Thank God.

May Christ enlighten, calm and grant wisdom and knowledge to all who are taking their exams.
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.
