Prayers for dreams
« on: January 10, 2011, 03:13:06 PM »
Lately, these past few days, I've been having strange dreams at night.

In my dreams, all my loved ones have been telling me that "being Baptist, not Orthodox, is the way to go" and that "all that Orthodox stuff is pure crap." I even remember last night, I felt ashamed in my dream for owning the OSB. But I didn't feel that way once I woke up. I know that this is Satan telling me this, not God. I'd really like for these dreams to stop.

Please pray for me.

Lord, have mercy!

This is neither Satan nor God, but simply your brain. Our dreams are merely the activity of our brain neurons producing images we worry about during the day. Right now, we have snow and sleet here where I live, and in my dreems I see myself in the car sliding down a frozen hill. It will pass as you become more independent and resonably critical of your parents. Best wishes to you.

Sometimes, our dreams are more than just images produced by overstressed neurons.

Whatever the source is....may the Lord have mercy and shield you from misleading and derisive dreams...and may you get a good night's sleep.
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.
—St. Isaac of Syria
