I'm feeling very heavy of heart.  Could you please pray that God heal my heart and mind and that I have hope for the future.

Thanks

You have had many difficulties lately, but, do not be disheartened. 
After even the worst storms, the sun eventually appears again.

Hang in there!

May the Lord have mercy and hasten the reappearance of the "sun" in your life!

I have observed that suffering is often the fate of those who truly fear God and seek His face. Because He is risen, we indeed have abiding hope. Sometimes we can't always see it, but by faith we cling to the Cross and rest in the unfailing mercy of God.


"Lord have mercy."

Thank you for your prayers.

I've been reading a book about St. Basil of Ostrog and am really impressed by his life and miracles.  I asked my priest if he could pray that St. Basil of Ostrog answer my prayer.  My priest did, and added (in a reasonable manner) that I could get an icon for the church as an offering.  I was like, I could do that, and have ordered an icon as an offering for the church.  

If you could please pray to St. Basil of Ostrog that he accepts this offering of gratitude for his help of healing, I would appreciate it!

Thanks for your prayers Ionnis.

I started taking an herb called Holy Basil a little less than a week ago.  I read that it helps with the nervous system and has no ill side effects.  It seems to calm me down a little.  I'm still having significant problem with my back.  I see the Myrrhbearing Iveron Icon this Thursday (21st of October) and will pray before Mary then, along with St. Basil of Ostrog.

I've read your other prayer requests and you have a whole lot going on.  I am so sorry, brother.  If you ever need someone to talk to, or just to vent, you can send me an email.  Trust in Our Most Sweet Mother, she will save you.
