For my brother
« on: July 18, 2009, 02:29:10 AM »
I would really appreciate your prayers for my brother. He has become addicted to World of Warcraft, and has shown a lot of agitation and anger for a long while because of the game. My father and I are exasperated because nothing seems to work. Please pray that he abandons this evil video game, and picks up a Bible instead! :(

Please also pray that my father and I have more patience and gentleness for him. :(

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.

"O Cross of Christ, all-holy, thrice-blessed, and life-giving, instrument of the mystical rites of Zion, the holy Altar for the service of our Great Archpriest, the blessing - the weapon - the strength of priests, our pride, our consolation, the light in our hearts, our mind, and our steps"
