Please pray for me, a new inquirer
« on: January 18, 2015, 08:43:03 PM »
Hello,

My first post, (many thanks to admins for my addition to this forum),
just thought I should start with prayer.

Please pray as I seek for a church fellowship, a spiritual father, and wisdom to see and understand with my heart all that the Lord Jesus would have me know.  I am not new to Christianity but I am new to Orthodoxy, I live in an area that would force me to travel at least 80 miles each way to attend services, and I am currently watching live streaming services from NY and NC and trying to study and follow a personal daily prayer rule.

Lord Jesus Christ have mercy on me, a sinner.

God bless all who would pray for me.
Thank you.

Welcome and Lord have mercy!
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

Not everything I type or have typed in the past is reflective of the teaching of the Orthodox Church, or may not reflect my contemporary views on a subject. (4/6/2015)

Glory to Jesus Christ!

I wish you the best of luck on your spiritual journey. If you haven't already picked out a prospective parish near you to visit, this site can do the work for you. http://www.assemblyofbishops.org/directories/parishes

It's a lifesaver. Lord, have mercy.

Yours in Christ,
Kostas

Lord, have mercy on your daughter.
If you need anything just ask. Welcome to the forum.
Psalm 37:23 The Lord guides a man safely in the way he should go.

Prov. 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.
