Prayers for Conversion
« on: April 13, 2010, 09:38:41 PM »
Hi,

Have been studying Orthodox for a few years as a EC I familiar to a bit of Orthodoxy. I just ask for prayers for my wife and I. We have met a priest we really like and is very good. God Bless

Lord, have mercy!

May God keep you safe and guide you home to His full Truth in the Church He established, the Orthodox Church.

"Lord have mercy."

Remember that Patriarchs and Priests are human and fallible, but the Teachings and Traditions of the Church are not. Focus on the Sacraments and the Liturgy, for therein lies the experience of God. Unfortunately, the Church is not immune from politics, squabbles, and internal divisions; but always know that we have a divine promise that "the gates of hell shall not prevail against it." [St. Matthew 16:18] We do not kiss the hand of the Priest to honor his worth, but because his is the hand through which we receive the Body and Blood of Our Lord.

Persevere in the pursuit of your baptism! Satan will now be most active and busy in his insidious efforts to deter you from entering the Church through its redeeming waters. Press forward, and do not let your hand turn back from the plow! [St. Luke 9:62]

Peace to you.

Welcome to the Forum.

Lord, have mercy, and guide your steps back home!

....and welcome HOME!

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.
