Pray for Paul's restoration to good health
« on: January 26, 2010, 09:11:35 AM »
Please remember Paul in your prayers, he is a pastor and man of God. He is in ICU with a fractured hip. His son, Father Jonathan, is a dear friend.

Lord, have mercy.
"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

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.

I have just learned from Father Jonathan that his dad, Rev. Paul, has turned the corner on his infection and is progressing from his bone surgery. Thank you for your continued prayers.
