My Mother
« on: April 26, 2011, 07:23:25 PM »
There are far too many details to outline here. I just ask for prayer for my Mother please. She is going through some of the worst things in her life. Today she told me about them and she is so very heavy on my heart. May God's will be done. As a side note, I had a trip planned for this weekend. I ask for God's discernment whether I need to stay with my Mom or go ahead and go. Lord have mercy.

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.

The situation was that my Mother's husband said he was leaving her two years after they married. There was some hope for reconciliation, but that is now dead. Please pray for her personal safety and that the demons won't whisper in her ears tonight as she sleeps. I fear for her and my heart breaks so bad for her. Lord have mercy.

He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.

You are right. I apologize for having sacked Constantinople. I really need to stop doing that.
