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.
