Anger
« on: May 11, 2009, 10:17:42 PM »
Hi, could you please pray that I be healed.  Lately I've been really angry inside, and have been having atheistic thoughts and feelings.  I've got a lot of pain, and it becomes overwhelming many times these days.

Lord, have mercy.

I'm sure you know, StGeorge, that it's imperative that you sit down and speak with your priest. I identify with your feelings of anger, having been there many times myself. Perhaps he can help you identify the root causes (which are not always easily identified). We will pray for you.

If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

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

Thanks for your prayers.  I just got in the mail "The Healing Icon of the Mother of God."  It has Mary standing over the bed of an ill person.  Could you please pray that through Mary's intercession I am healed of some of this.  No need to respond, but I appreciate the prayers.

Having such issues myself, I identify with what you are going through and I pray, like everyone else, Lord have mercy on your servant.
