I’m kind of going through some stuff from wanting to settle a car accident I was hurt in and it’s hard to deal with. I freak out at the thought of dealing with the accident as it comes up.  :'(

I know it's difficult to accept but the awful truth is that "a Christian fears nothing" as he or she nows that everything (except evil) comes from God - and everything that actually happens - does so because of God's will.

The hard thing is to change fear into trust - sometimes even impossible as our imagination and uncertainty is our worst enemy. In fact, such thoughts are inspired by evil.

Elder Paisios said that every one who is seeking peace should be bringing peace to others. The only thing we can do is to pray and ask God to help us with our problems and fears...

Zephyr, the Prayer forum is for simple prayer and praise only, no advice or commentary.  If you feel moved to offer these, please do so via PM. 
Thanks.  —Ainnir

I am going to call to doctor about a medication. I need to be able to focus calmly to knock work out while at work. My off work is less extreme but my general is nets to something similar. Please pray also for work. We have deadlines and lots of them.

I'm almost done with some paperwork for some of the stuff. :D

I'm getting up in 3 hours for work and don't know if I am going to keep the job and do well enough to ask for a vacation this November off-It would be nice to go on a trip. I also don't want to lose the job necessarily.
I am so tired. Everyone at work is stressed out, but I am so close to finally have an evening to myself to relax.

I am worried I messed something up at work. I might not get to fix it until Monday and worry about it all weekend. I have not been sleeping well, and stress isn’t helping. As a fun plus, I keep having headaches that Tylenol doesn’t do enough for-not sure of that’s posture or side effect.

Followup day tomorrow. Hoping things go well and I can be done with one part source of stress and without reason for regret.
