I will go through some things over the next couple of days.  I need you prayers.

May the Lord bless you and help you through what lies ahead.

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

Father, Proverbs 18:10 says that your name is a strong tower that the righteous run to and are saved. Help us to run to you for strength and safety when we are in need and know that what we face we do not face alone, your Spirit is with us to comfort and lead us into all truth. Remind us that you are our light and stronghold of life, when we are afraid Psalm 27:1 and that your word is a lamp for our feet and a light for our path Psalm 119:105 when we need to know the way forward.

Thank you that you are close to all who call upon you in truth and that you will grant the desires of the heart of those who fear you Psalm 145:18. Thank you that your word says when we cast our burdens on you, that you will sustain us and not permit us to be moved Psalm 55:22. Father God, in your mercy, hear this prayer and uphold your word, that we will find rest in you for our weary soul Matthew 11.

In Jesus mighty name, amen

Holy God, Holy Mighty, Holy Immortal have mercy on your servant Mina!

Most Pure Theotokos , intercede for you servant Mina and come to his aide and protection


through the prayers of St. Mina and St. Kyrillos Lord have mercy!

To God be the Glory in all things! Amen!

Only pray for me, that God would give me both inward and outward strength, that I may not only speak, but truly will; and that I may not merely be called a Christian, but really be found to be one. St.Ignatius of Antioch.Epistle to the Romans.

Every day we should hear at least one little song, read one good poem, see one exquisite picture, and, if possible, speak a few sensible words. -Goethe

I once heard a monk say, “The person of prayer does not need to go any further than his own heart to find the source of all violence in the world.” -Fr. Stephen Freeman
