Pray For Winter Youth Rally Participants
« on: December 26, 2007, 03:22:37 PM »
Shortly, a bus will be leaving that will carry on it 31 members of my parish to the 2007 Atlanta Metropolis Winter Youth Rally. They will be spending a few days competing in volleyball and basketball tournaments along with Bible Bowl contests with other GOYAns, as well as church services, etc. It's a great way to help kids celebrate the week between Nativity and St Basil's Day!

Anyway, please pray for those who are children and adults that are traveling:
-that they will safely return;
-that they will form friendships with others in other parishes and among themselves;
- and while they are competing, that the Lord crown them with glory and honor in His name!

Lord, have mercy!
"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

Father Bless,

BTW, Father, how much cereal does a Bible Bowl hold?  I do love my cereal... :D

Lord, have mercy and save our youth.
If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.
