For my wife
« on: November 17, 2011, 11:04:39 PM »
My wife and I just found out that she is pregnant.  Glory to God for that!

But, my wife is now just really exhausted and frequently nauseous. I do not get to see her much when I come from work as she is already asleep which is rare because she has had much difficulty sleeping through the night.

Prayers for her that she be made well and also for our little one(s).

Lord, please care for her and for this new, precious life.
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.

Congratulations on the good news!

May the Lord keep your wife and unborn child healthy, safe and happy! 

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 Jesus Christ, have mercy on Your handmaiden and her young child(ren).
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.
