My brother and academics


#1

Lately, my brother's grades have been slipping. Naturally my parents are worried about his future, etc. My mom was trying to discuss it with him in the car this evening and his final argument was basically:

"Look, I'm only going to be on this earth another 70 years or so, then I'll die and go to heaven. I'll finally escape this hell. So why even try?"

:( Please pray my brother will realize we should glorify God with the gifts and life He's given us, and that he will change his mind and focus on school work more. I hate seeing him like this... he's wasting his life away. Thank you and God bless!

Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name.
Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it as it is in heaven.
Give us this day, our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive
those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but
deliver us from evil.
Amen

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women,and
blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and
at the hour of our death.
Amen

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit,
as it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be world without end.
Amen

Thank you very much for your prayers everyone. Today my brother fell and got cut by a sharp metal edge on an open locker- the wound wasn’t too severe or anything but it was deep enough for him to get 3 stitches. Please continue to pray for him.
