For a very difficult assignment
« on: October 08, 2011, 11:55:42 PM »
I have no leeway on this one. It absolutely must be in on Monday and it's a large part of my grade. I'm probably not going to sleep for the next two nights, it's likely the only way to finish.

Lord, please strengthen me if it is your will.
Is that what they teach you at the temple volnutt-stein?

Actually, it's Volnutt-berg.

Rome doesn't care. Rome is actually very cool guy.

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.

Lord, have mercy!
“But I say to you who hear: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, and pray for those who spitefully use you. To him who strikes you on the one cheek, offer the other also. And from him who takes away your cloak, do not withhold your tunic either.” +Luke 6:27-29

I have been going through similar things lately.

Lord have mercy!

I am sure you'll be fine. ;)

Lord God, your word tells us in Colossians 3:23 and in Ephesians 6:7 to work at everything to the best of our ability as though we were working for you directly. Thank you that you provide the strength for us to uphold what it asks us to do in your word Philippians 4:13, and thank you that Volnutt has the ability to do his best because he is your child and because the Spirit of the living God lives inside of him Galatians 4:6.

Thank you Father that 2 Corinthians 12:9 says that your grace is made perfect in weakness and at times when we have the least ability to be strong, it's your power sustaining us that we rely on and therefore give the glory to you.

In Jesus holy name, amen.

Lord have mercy.

Get plenty of rest now.
The memory of God should be treasured in our hearts like the precious pearl mentioned in the Holy Gospel. Our life's goal should be to nurture and contemplate God always within, and never let it depart, for this steadfastness will drive demons away from us. - Paraphrased from St. Philotheus of Sinai
Writings from the Philokalia: On Prayer of the Heart,
Translated from the Russian by E. Kadloubovksy and G.E.H. Palmer, Faber and Faber, London, Boston, 1992 printing.

Great news!

Glad to hear it!

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.
