    nick, 12/17/2014
  5. Hi. I am 19 and next Monday (Dec. 22nd 2014) I will be taking the Accuplacer test for the 4th time. It is for college for PSEO. If I pass I get more options towards classes. There is a certain score you need to pass. I Know I can reach that score but I get anxious and really nervous which causes me to fail. I go back and forth between \"I can pass it\" and \"I don\'t know if I can take it again mentally\" But if I don\'t pass I only have a few options for free classes or I will have to start paying for classes which I can\'t afford. Either way I don\'t know what to take but if I pass at least I\'ll have more choices. Pray for me for when I take it?

Take charge of me, direct my feelings, emotions, thoughts and my path in the direction you have chosen for me. Lift me out of every such situation that is not approved by you and not in your plans for me. My Father, fill me with your love and send the Holy Spirit to be my companion so i need no other. Take away my loneliness and need for anyone outside your plans. If you have chosen a life of solitude without family or friend, then transform me, my needs and desires, so i can lead the life you have decided for me.

I want to be happy so pls release me of all such expectations that fill me with sadness. Protect me from deception and treachery, pretences that affects my state of mind and heart

  5. I truly need a miracle today. It has been nine days since my boyfriend said he no longer loves me. I know he does love me but it is his low self esteem & insecurities that take over his mind. I know he never means to leave but he cannot control his mind. We do love each other and he is asking our many friends have they heard from me and they have asked him if he is going out for New Year\'s and his response was, \"I can\'t without my dance partner\". They told him well you did a fine job of stopping that from happening. I\'m asking that the holy spirit heal him and return him to me immediately. I truly love him he is my sole mate and I his.
