"Lord Have Mercy on Me a Sinner!"

« on: October 15, 2011, 02:49:17 PM »

Please pray for my dear friend and brother in Christ who is going through a very difficult time right now. His faith in God is being tested. He is a very dear friend to me, and he has encouraged me tremendously in my own life. I hate so see him suffering so! Please lift him up in your prayers.

Thank you.

Lord have mercy.

Most Holy Theotokos, pray for us.

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

Father God, your word says that we have a friend that sticks closer than any brother, who knows our weaknesses and pain and is able to empathise with us when we are hurting and in need of comfort. Thank you that you are there with Gebre's dear friend, with him through this testing time. Thank you that you do not allow us to be tested beyond that with which we can cope. Your word says that the testing of our faith produces something in us, it's not wasted, nothing is wasted, not even the bad times we go through. It's all woven together and works together for our good when we love you and are called for your purpose.

Thank you that you never leave us, even when it feels like we are all alone.

In Jesus, name above all names, amen.

(Proverbs 18:24, Hebrews 4:15, John 14:26, 1 Corinthians 10:13, James 1:3, Romans 8:28, Hebrews 13:5, Acts 4:12)

None of us can have as many virtues as the fountain pen, or half its cussedness; but we can try. Mark Twain

Lord, have mercy and grant Your servant strength to persevere his current crisis; renew his faith, and grant him peace.


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!

“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
