    I feel sort of silly asking for prayer over this, but I know I am in need of it.

    Tomorrow (Oct.31) my wife and I go before our pastor and deacons for final questioning toward me becoming a deacon in our church. Unless I really blow it, I will be ordained on Nov.1.

    I am extremely nervous about this. Oh, I know I am fine as far as what is being asked of me, but I am nervous about the whole thing. I in no way feel I measure up to the task, but I realize no one ever does. My wife is freaking out as much as I am, too.

    I am also rather sad, as I was asked to consider this after my dad was in the hospital, so I never got to share this with him before he died. I dearly miss him and wish he could be there this Sunday for the ordination.

    Please pray for us. We need the peace of god instead of this spirit of anxiety.

    Thanks you all.

    You will do a wonderful job and from the bit I know you online, I know that you will be a great servant for the Lord. He's called you - you just need to keep in line with him and you can't go wrong. :)

    Thank you all for the prayers. We have completed the questioning/conformation. Everything is "GO" for the ordination tomorrow.

    Praise the Lord for walking me through it all.

    Now is the time to pray for you. Do you know what you are getting in to?

    I'm starting to get an inkling. >.< LOL

    Thank you all for all the prayers. Everything went smoothly and I am now locked into this capacity. I love the Lord, I love my church, and I love the people God has placed within it.

    Some of our current deacons are getting way on up there in age and we had lost a couple or so due to sickness and death. I will be stepping into so really big shoes...
