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.

Grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway, the good fortune to run into the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference.

Lord, have mercy.
Quote
"What people say when they speak on their own account is repellent and murksome, for their words do not come from the living spring of the Spirit, but are spawned from the morass of their own heart, a bog infested with the leeches, snakes and frogs of desire, delusion and dissipation; the water of their knowledge is evil-smelling, turbid and torpid, sickening to those who drink it and filling them with nausea and disgust."
