I'd be grateful for a prayer for help with my final masters work. I have a family and I have tried to fit this around them with much sacrifice involved on everyone's part. I find it so hard to concentrate sometimes just staring at a blank screen. I have worked so hard, and I'm near the end. I could really do with some help and positive inspiration to push me over the line and complete this thing. Help me please. Thank you.

Ah, yes, and perfection does not necessarily mean excellence.

Wait, what?

Good work is often done in iterations; the key in school is in discerning which iteration will get the satisfactory grade. :thinking: :)

Peace and Easter blessings to you, Rubia! :) as you burn the midnight :minicandle:
Joe :)
Peace and blessings,
Joe

Happy Mastering, Rubia !

Just remember that if your M is perfect there'll be no room for your D, so settle for superb for now. :)

for God's hand in yours as you meet this challenge and God's light on your path as you complete this part of your journey :votive1: :votive1: :votive1:
In the triumph of prayer
Twofold is the spell.
With the folding of hands
There's a spreading of wings
And the soul's lifted up to invisible lands
And ineffable peace .....

God bless you all for your kind prayers and wishes. It has really lifted me this evening. It has made me think of a hymn I used to sing as a child.

Walk with me Oh my Lord,
Through the darkest night and brightest day.
Be at my side oh Lord,
Hold my hand and guide me on my way.

Thank you all again. Best wishes and blessings to you all. :) :thumbs:

I sympathise. I always struggle to write too. Regular (but short!) breaks help, I have found.

You will do wonderfully I am sure.

:votive2: Praying for concentration and inspiration for you.
