Pray for me...
« on: January 29, 2014, 09:08:47 AM »
I have been feeling bipolar this few days and I would appreciate your prayers.
I have a major exam in November that's going to decide my entire future -- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Singapore-Cambridge_GCE_Ordinary_Level and here I am sitting around wailing in self-pity and not studying. I just really do not see a point in doing anything now.
I really feel broken... and sad... Sometimes I just feel like giving up and just...
I feel as if I'm squandering my life away...

I'm not sure if this matters but I have not been made catechumen yet.

Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner...

Lord have mercy.

Are the language parts oral or written? If it's written you should probably make sure your Chinese Hanzi are up to the task.

Lord, have mercy and ease your stress, open your mind and give you strength.

November is still far off.  Relax and take it one day at a time.  Just assign one hour in the afternoon and evening for studies.
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.
—St. Isaac of Syria

Lord, have mercy.
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.

Lord have mercy.

Take it one day at a time, split up into small segments, and do not forget to pray.

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.
