For a Friend in Despair
« on: May 04, 2011, 10:47:34 PM »
Christ is risen!

I know I have asked for prayers (repeatedly) for my friend Jon in the past. I would ask that you would continue to pray for him this evening. He is in a deep despair and mental anguish over the stress his job is causing him, and I fear he is on the verge of a breakdown.

Please, pray that God "opens a door" for him so that he can leave this job, and that the Lord will ease his suffering.

Thank you!

Lord, have mercy!
But the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.
Leviticus 19:34

"For, by its immensity, the divine substance surpasses every form that our intellect reaches. Thus we are unable to apprehend it by knowing what it is. Yet we are able to have some knowledge of it by knowing what it is not." - St. Thomas Aquinas, Summa contra gentiles, I, 14.
