Please Pray

This may seem like a silly prayer request, but I ask for prayers anyway.
Tonight was my first official night of drivers ed and was basically told I'd be doing something I hate doing more than anything- PUBLIC SPEAKING. A 5-10 minute presentation on a topic. We haven't been assigned any yet, but some examples would be drinking while driving, while doing drugs, and while sleepy/tired. It will be in front of people I really don't know, and to a group of my weakpoint- peers. So, I ask for your prayers for courage, ability, and that I won't stress about it. I know that with God all things are possible, but usually I stress about these things from the time I find out to the time they happen which would be December 19th I think.

The other thing is, as likable and nice as my inscructor is, he says things I really don't agree with, so I ask for your prayers for his salvation, as well as for the other students that may be unsaved. It's going to be a struggle to be in this class twice a week (except Chirstmas week) listening to the Lord's name be taken in vain, among other things. I mean it's not new to hear His name taken in vain, but it still has that "stabbing" feeling whenever I hear it.

God's definately been teaching me a lesson in keeping with my beliefs when I'm around people who don't share the same, and for that I'm thankful, even though it's pretty tough and seems to be pushing me to my limits.

Thanks so much in advance for all your prayers. They mean alot.

I'll be praying for you! Public speaking can be stressful. I'll be praying for your interaction with the teacher and other students as well

I'll pray for you, too,honey. God is always strong but seems strongest when we're at our weakest.
