Please pray for me and those dear to me
« on: October 09, 2002, 10:00:40 PM »
My grandmother is quite ill and has been hospitalized.  I ask your prayers on her behalf (her name is Conception' - a Spanish name), for her health...and if not her healing, perhaps above all else, that she leave this world as a friend of God.

I also ask your prayers for me, my fiance, and my immediate family (parents and a brother); we're all going through some rough times right now (financial and personal); we've already suffered a death in the family recently (my great aunt Margaret), and current circumstances (in particular my grandmother's illness) have not made things any easier.

Please pray for the repose of my aunt (Margaret).  And after these for me (real name, Timothy), a sinner.

I will be happy to pray for you and all your relatives.

Please remember that God either wills or permits the events in our lives, all because if handled properly (i.e., with our hearts on Him) we are led closer to Him at the conclusion of these things we call troubles.

Seraphim, just wanted to drop a line and say that I'm sure many have been praying even though they haven't posted.
"The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny--it is the light that guides your way." - Heraclitus

He's right.  You and your loved ones are still in my prayers, and will be remembered at the Divine Liturgy this Sunday.

Thank you, one and all, for your charity on my behalf (and on behalf of those in my family who are in need.)  These have been trying times for us all, and it's all leaving me quite frazzeled.

Once again, thank-you, and I will pray for you all.
