I ask you my brothers and sisters to please pray for me one of your fellow struggling brothers. For my bones have I made lazy, and for my eyes, heart, and mind have I made black as coal because I've turned them away fromt the Lord. In school I am getting behinde, this problem worries me to a great extent. I really don't know what to do! This starts a chain reaction, which by the way can go either way -or in any order. Sin=Far from God=no peace or happiness= lazyness=failling school. It's HARDER to just get up and pray. I don't think I have the patience for it, nor the mindfulness, or the eyes of repentence. What strikes me most is that I don't feel sorry for my actions, and dwell in them. Dwelling in the pleaseurous but painful, pleasent-looking but ugly, sin. Even though in the inside I know I am in distressed, why am I not returning? It could be because of my pride, how do i get rid of that, when I haven't even learned how to be patient or even to be obedient. Also please pray for my work habbits, and for his blessing to help me on the unit test that is comming and for all the days of all of our lives.
