Prayers please
« on: June 19, 2005, 12:09:53 PM »
I know this may seem like a trivial request amongst all the other prayer requests in this thread...but I really need prayers for my exams, for the sake of my parents alone. My parents are getting old, tired and sick; they're lonely, hard-working, and long-suffering. Their life revolves around my brother and I, and our success is their happiness.

I've had a very bad past 2 years; my studies have degenerated badly...I know I don't deserve success this semester, but my parents deserve to see their son succeed; It crushes me to think how they'll react if i stuff up for the 3rd semester in a row. Please pray that I pass my exams, for the sake of my parents alone. Do not pray on my behalf because I am a sinner unworthy of His Grace, but pray on behalf of my parents; He will be more attentive to you that way.

20th, 21st, 22nd, 27th of June: They're my dates. If you can remember to spare at least 5 seconds on these days to pray that God have Mercy and allow me to pass my exams for the sake of my parents, I would be most grateful.

Peace.

EA, of course.


Also be harsh on yourself, but not despairing... never despairing.
Lord have mercy.

These days are approaching, and I will pray then as well as now. You're on my list, EA!

May the Lord strengthen you and support you . A good practice that always worked for me is to "assign" each exam to a saint who intercedes on your behalf.

Not despair, just urgency...

Thank you for your prayers,

Peace.
