My girlfriend is not a Christian. Please continue to pray for her conversion.

So and more also do God unto the enemies of David, if I leave of all that pertain to him by the morning light any that pisseth against the wall.

Thank you for your prayers. I know we're on the opposite sides of some debates here, but I do appreciate your charity. Thanks and God bless!

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

Thank you all so much for your prayers. Praise be to God, my girlfriend has recently declared her desire to convert someday to Orthodoxy! I would describe her at this point as not having faith, but wanting to have faith. She still does not really believe in God, and has trouble understanding what faith is. But she wants to learn, believe, and understand. Her change to being open to conversion, even actively seeking to believe - I think this is a huge step! Please pray that God will reveal himself to her and grant her the gift of faith!
