I have a few prayer requests, and I would appreciate it if anyone who feels led to do so would lift them up to God.
--There are no Christians in my family. My father died last year, and he wasn't a Christian in spite of my efforts to reach him. I hoped that his death would lead my family to think of the state of their souls, but it didn't. The members of my family are either apathetic or outright hostile to the Christian faith. Please pray for my family (mother, grandmother, sisters, nieces and nephews) to come to faith in Christ. Please pray that God will use me to reach them so they will come into the Orthodox Church.
--I'm having severe problems with my back, and it's quite painful. It affects my mobility and overall quality of life. I've suffered from this for three years. Please pray either for my healing, or that I will have the strength to bear this with grace, patience, and faith.
--I have two friends who are torn between the Roman Catholic Church and the Orthodox Church. Please remember them in prayer.
--Please pray for me as I continue my journey towards the Orthodox Church. My grandmother is hostile about the idea, and I haven't even told the rest of my family yet.
--I attend a small Orthodox mission station. Please pray for the mission, that we will be able to find a full time priest and reach our local community. Please pray for the conversion of souls here.
Thank you to anyone who prays for me, my family, and my friends. Please know that your prayers are greatly appreciated.
