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.

Lord, have mercy.

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!

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!
