Prayer for ordination candidate
« on: February 28, 2007, 02:45:43 PM »
Hi, all.  I know I'm breaking my hiatus from posting during Lent, but I just received some very joyous news.  My baptismal sponsor, Aaron, will be ordained to the Holy Diaconate on April 24 and to the Holy Priesthood on May 5.  Please pray for him and his family as he sets about to do the Lord's work.  thanks!

Lord, have mercy on your servant and his family and count him worthy of Your service!
If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

May the LORD bless him and you!
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6
