My Biblical School test is tonight. I just decided that I cannot possibly memorize the Psalm verse I had chosen, so I have chosen another, with three hours left to memorize it. I wish my brain worked better. This is my fourth year of these tests and I can tell you, I spend the day of the test memorizing, the drive to the church speaking them aloud, and the moment I get the test, I turn to the part where you are to write your memorized verses. I write them down and then POOF! they are gone. My brain does not work like that any longer.
I bet I could recite the entire mass. I know all my prayers. I know I have the capacity to memorize - or I HAD the capacity to memorize. But I tell you, it is gone. Thank God I STILL know what I learned long ago.
So, here they are:
Have mercy on me, O God, according to your steadfast love; according to your abundant mercy blot out my transgression. -- Psalm 51:1
And he said, "Naked I came from my mother's womb, and naked shall I return; the Lord gave, and the Lord has taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord. -- Job 1:21Any prayers would be greatly appreciated. Thank you and God bless you.
