I am unworthy of your prayers, but I still ask...
« on: March 05, 2011, 04:44:17 PM »
...please pray for my mental health. Due to the estrangment from my ex, I have fallen into grave dissilliounment and desparity. I didn't think it was bad until two nights in a row, where the demons are becoming more powerful. I've fallen into deeper sin because of it.

Please pray for me.

If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

"Lord have mercy."


Selam
"Bad art may be forgiven; but to remain unmoved by beauty will not. Doubts may be forgiven; but a lack of wonder will not. Tilting at windmills may be forgiven; but allowing our neighbors to be grinded in the gears will not. Denying the existence of the Creator may be forgiven; but ignoring the glories of creation will not."

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.
—St. Isaac of Syria

Authentic zeal is not directed towards anything but union in Christ, or against anything but our own fallenness.
