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.

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.
