Pray for me...
« on: November 03, 2011, 10:25:44 AM »
Please pray for me, I found out I have a hernia that needs surgery yesterday.  Really bad timing, my boss had put off hiring someone untill Dec., so the work is piling up, the shop foreman is retiring at the end of Dec., in which I take over, I also have Jury duty coming up in two weeks!   My wife had another cousin pass away who was the same age as us also and my prayer rule has gone to the point were all I can prayer is Lord have mercy.  This all on top of my wife and I going in different direction concerning our faith, she baptist, me orthodox former baptist.  I feel numb in many ways.

:(  I'm sorry to hear that you are having so many hardships.  Keep the faith.  It will pass.

May the Lord have mercy, grant you health, endurance and strength;  may things work themselves out in a way that will be best for you in the long run.

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!

My condolences with your wife's and family loss. In situations where things seem overwhelming, draw and attach yourself firmly to God. The Lord is in control and will not abandon you. Put it in his hands and keep your faith. I will pray for your hardships to pass and the Lord grant you better for them.

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
