Please pray for my dad, James (non-Orthodox), who is in a very dark place emotionally in large part because of his negative work environment. Recently a new job opportunity has arisen: pray that, if it be God's will, this opportunity will become a new job, and a much needed personal "victory" for my dad so he won't feel so beat down all the time.

May the warmth of the Holy Spirit fill your father and your family.
And may the Lord have mercy on you and grant your father this new position and a path to Orthodoxy.

Lord, have mercy!

If you want advice or just to vent, whatever, please feel free to PM me. I have an experience that might be of some help - my own father (1930-1996) suffered from depression, even though he kept trying to hide it.

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.
