for my sister
« on: July 07, 2010, 05:16:25 PM »
Brothers and Sisters in Christ Jesus,

Some of you may remember previous prayer requests I have posted for my sister, Carolyn, who was struggling with what was a seemingly undiagnosed hormone issue that led to extreme weight loss and depression.  It has recently come out that she has developed anorexia nervosa and is now in an in-patient treatment facility to help her combat this issue.  Please pray that the Lord Jesus not only lighten her load through giving her a healthy appetite and proper self-image but that the emotional turmoil caused by this revelation be calmed and my family support one another, and especially my sister, through this difficult time.

Lord, have mercy!

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 stopped posting here in August 2011 because of stark disagreement with the policies of the administration and moderating team of the forums. If you desire, feel free to PM me, message me on Facebook (link in profile), or email me:

You are right. I apologize for having sacked Constantinople. I really need to stop doing that.
