Psalm Prayer 139

O God, protector of heaven and earth, in whose death hell was harrowed, by whose rising again the multitude of saints was gladdened; at whose ascension the host of angels exulted; we make our prayer to the exceeding might of so much glory, that led in the way everlasting, we may be protected by that arm wherein Thine honoured friends rejoice with Thee in heaven; who livest and reignest with the Father and the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end. Amen.

Y'all, I have my annual performance evaluation in about 30 minutes (3:00 CST). Would you keep me in your prayers if you get this before then? Last year's was horrible (with interim who does not like me), this year's should be better, with new boss who is rather a tough person to be around but at least doesn't have it in for me.

Grace abounds...I had lunch today with my former boss, a wonderful, loving person who reminded me (just by his personality) that my work has value and meaning. Tom showed me the big picture again, and I needed that!

Well, I guess I missed the deadline but I'm praying retroactively. God can handle that, right?

Same here, MB. Hope it went really well.

Just the opportunity to put this request out meant so much! Appreciate the prayers...even retroactively!

It went well. Meeting was very collegial and even enjoyable.

:) Yea!

Well, I'm *really* behind the prayer time, but I'm glad to hear it went well!
