Tough Time
« on: July 20, 2011, 06:17:01 PM »
I don't really like to ask for prayers for myself, because I don't want to take up people's time.  However, I am going through something of a personal crisis, and I would greatly appreciate any prayers you might be able to offer on my behalf.  I don't really want to get into it here, but it's just a tough personal problem I need to work through, and I think prayer will be the biggest part of that.

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.

Lord have mercy.
On an extended hiatus from this site. Please pray for me and my family.

I'm sorry to any that my posts might offend.

Thank you all.  And Father Chris, thank you for the offer, but I probably bother enough priests already (there are two at my parish).
