Prayers for conversion, diabetes
« on: June 16, 2009, 08:48:00 PM »
Dear Friends ,

I am new to this forum. I am a Greek Catholic who is almost for certain going to convert to Orthodoxy.

I would like to ask your prayers for the following:

1) for my diabetes- I have had some high numbers recently
2) for my journey to the Orthodox Church.

blessings,

Lance

Lord, have mercy, and heal and guide Your servant!
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Lord, have mercy!
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

May the Lord have mercy, and restore you.




Jeremiah 30:17

 17For I will restore health unto thee, and I will heal thee of thy wounds, saith the LORD
There is no more evident sign that anyone is a saint and of the number of the elect, than to see him leading a good life and at the same time a prey to desolation, suffering, and trials. - Saint Aloysius Gonzaga

Excellence of character, then, is a state concerned with choice, lying in a mean relative to us, this being determined by reason and in the way in which the man of practical wisdom would determine it. Now it is a mean between two vices, that which depends on excess and that which depends on defect.
