Please pray for me to finish my homework! It is very urgent!
When there are things I MUST do, no matter what, (such as your urgent homework in this case) I pray that God will give me strength. THEN I just force myself to do it! I can drag my feet on all sorts of things, even getting ready to meet with a loved family member! It is my sin nature, my rebellion, that gives me this urge to resist what I know I ought to [should] do. If forcing yourself to do it still isn’t working, consider the following.
Paul had the same problem and he wrote about it in Romans 7:
Romans 7:15-25 New International Version (NIV)
15 I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. 16 And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. 17 As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. 18 For I know that good itself does not dwell in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. 19 For I do not do the good I want to do, but the evil I do not want to do—this I keep on doing. 20 Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
21 So I find this law at work: Although I want to do good, evil is right there with me. 22 For in my inner being I delight in God’s law; 23 but I see another law at work in me, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within me. 24 What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body that is subject to death? 25 Thanks be to God, who delivers me through Jesus Christ our Lord!
So then, I myself in my mind am a slave to God’s law, but in my sinful nature a slave to the law of sin.
Bottom line? “Who will rescue me from this body that is subject to death?”
Answer and solution: “Thanks be to God, who delivers me through Jesus Christ our Lord!”
P.S. Homework is easier to accomplish on time if you start working on it the day you get the assignment.
