For my wife Lesya (Alexandra)
« on: October 29, 2009, 10:22:18 AM »
May I ask a quick prayer for my wife Lesya (baptismal name Alexandra)? She has problems at work (very poor management at her department), and problems with relatives (mother in a psychiatric hospital, sister whining and playing the blame game all the time), plus she went to a conference in Boston and had a nightmarish trip back (planes canceled, route changed, etc., so it took 9 hours instead of normal 3-4). Recently, it began to show on her health. She has something like an acute gastritis, cannot eat anything because her stomach hurts. Thank you for listening and praying...

Lord, have mercy on Your Handmaiden, Alexandra!

Please let Lesya know that I am concerned about her, and wish her well!

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, heal, protect, and strengthen her!
"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

Thank you, all, again, so much! She is a bit better this morning - still feels some physical dyscomfort, but at least better psychologically.
