Need Prayer for my Thesis
« on: November 04, 2013, 07:41:56 PM »
I am going to submit a draft of my thesis tomorrow afternoon. Being that I want it to be really good, I will probably work throughout the night to polish and polish. Please keep me in your prayers, and please ask the Theotokos to intercede on my behalf.
"For, by its immensity, the divine substance surpasses every form that our intellect reaches. Thus we are unable to apprehend it by knowing what it is. Yet we are able to have some knowledge of it by knowing what it is not." - St. Thomas Aquinas, Summa contra gentiles, I, 14.

Lord have mercy.

Most Holy Theotokos, save us.

Sleep does help to clarify and refresh one's mind, so do not neglect to have some sleep or you might make simple spelling mistakes like its/it's or their/there/they're. When I was writing my thesis, I would take small naps rather than going without sleep. Funny, I would proof my thesis while I was sleeping and wake up knowing exactly where an error was made.

St. Nectarios, pray to God for us.
The memory of God should be treasured in our hearts like the precious pearl mentioned in the Holy Gospel. Our life's goal should be to nurture and contemplate God always within, and never let it depart, for this steadfastness will drive demons away from us. - Paraphrased from St. Philotheus of Sinai
Writings from the Philokalia: On Prayer of the Heart,
Translated from the Russian by E. Kadloubovksy and G.E.H. Palmer, Faber and Faber, London, Boston, 1992 printing.

Lord, have mercy. Most Holy Theotokos pray for us.
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.
