Stressed
« on: November 02, 2011, 05:47:47 PM »
I'm going to get straight to the point. I am restless and super stressed right now and I feel overworked. I can't even pray because of the internal calamity going on right now. Can you pray in my stead, please?

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.

Praying that the Lord has mercy upon you, and grants you peace.

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.

Don't forget to pray something, anything. At a minimum, it will only make you feel more stressed, if you stop altogether. It can make you feel like you're dropping one more piece of the juggling act.

I'm going to need this.

Lord have mercy.
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

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
