Prayer for struggle
« on: September 09, 2004, 08:28:59 PM »
I dont know if were supposed to ask for personal prayer but....if we can I would like prayer for the strength and ability to oevrcome certain sins.

The harder I have determined not to do certain things, the harder they have become to avoid, and that really shows my weakness. But they are really affecting my life now and I know I need help from God.I will be speaking to a priest about these thingson Sunday if I am able to get to the nearest Orthodox Church, (I dont have a car)but even if I make it, I dont want to fall again before I go.

Thanks

Prayers for your situation and strength.

An old timer is a man who's had a lot of interesting experiences -- some of them true.

Lord, have mercy.
Quote from: Fr Alexander Schmemann
The Gospel is quite clear: both saints and sinners love God. "Religious" people do not love him, and whenever they can, they crucify him.

Of course, OC.net is not reflective of the Church, but is rather a surreal bubble. I have visited a lot of different parishes around the world and have listened to many hours of AFR...
