Hey All,
I've got court tomorrow morning for a traffic ticket that could potentially mess up my financial state.  It wouldn't be a big deal usually, but with Christmas coming up I would really like to have the cash to be with my family during the holiday.  It could also, depending on the judge, land me in county lockup for a couple days (all this for an unpaid speeding ticket & getting caught on my way to the DMV to get it unsuspended (in VA you have to pay the county AND the DMV, quite the little deal they've got set up there)).  Fairfax County judges are reputed to be rather mean, and while I don't mind admiting that I did wrong, (I was gambling that between the 2 miles between work & the DMV would be cop free), I don't particularly want to spend my weekend in a orange jumpsuit, or not being able to see/get gifts for my family this Christmas.
Anyway, if you have time, say a little prayer for me tomorrow morning.
Thanks.

OK, so i was there for 3+ hours, but all I can say is thank God for sleazy lawyers, and the lawyers that owe the sleazy lawyers favors.  :-D
Because I was polite, nice & honest (cop's own words) the officer and the prosecuter didn't object to having the charge reduced to a "operating without a license" and a $50 fine.  Thanks for all your prayers, I'm sure they went a long way.  :-)

I know of Fairfax County and nearby Loudoun County (I have my own ticket stories there). 

I'll pray for you.

Retroactive prayer just isn't as cool a concept when you know the results already  Tongue

Ah, I see.

I just clicked on related threads to another prayer thread and said I'd pray. 

Perhaps God foresaw my future prayer and acted on it.   Wink

Glory to God!

I knew former colleagues caught going 100+ in Fairfax Co. and lost their licenses for up to 6 months.  Their mothers had to drive them to work and back.   Embarrassed

Please try to drive carefully in the future.   angel

Amen!
