Prayers and Praises for friend's baptism
« on: January 19, 2010, 01:58:33 AM »
A good friend of mine, Seth, is being baptized today as John for Theophany.  His patron is St. John the Forerunner, so all of this is very appropriately timed.  Anyway, remember him in your prayers today, as he has been preparing for this for several years.

Glory to God!

Glory to God.  Many years to him.
"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
