Prayers for Andrew, V, and V's brother
« on: September 04, 2008, 05:57:05 PM »
Please pray for Andrew and V, that God may guide their hearts to the right place and bless and guide their relationship as He see fit. As of now, they are but close friends, and Andrew is doing his best to keep it at that level, but it seems that deep down he has hopes it may grow beyond mere friendship eventually. Andrew is still trying to recover from previous hurt, so pray that he handles the circumstance at hand prudently and carefully so that he avoids unwittingly putting himself in a situation that serves to further agitate a barely healed wound.

Request for prayers in particular for V, who despite a very troubled past has amazingly preserved a very genuine faith in the Lord, though one that still needs much "refinement."

Special prayer request also for V's brother who has been in a coma since 2 days ago.

Lord,

when I was a child,
I asked You to change the world.

As I grew,
I asked you to change people.

Now,
I ask you to change me.
If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

Lord, grant guidance and wisdom to Andrew as he seeks Thy will in all things and guide his friendship with V in a path pleasing to Thee.

Have mercy and compassion on V's brother and grant him the gift of healing!

Prayers...
An old timer is a man who's had a lot of interesting experiences -- some of them true.

Grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway, the good fortune to run into the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference.
