Prayer for Troubled Times
« on: January 02, 2012, 08:40:29 AM »
Without going into detail, please keep me (Maureen) in prayer. Things have been rather rough lately for a variety of reasons.

Thank you!

Lord have mercy.

Most Holy Theotokos, pray for us.
He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.

Lord have mercy!

Most holy Theotokos, come to the aid of your servant Maureen, in her hour of need, intercede with your Beloved Son so he may fill all that is needed in her life. Amen.
To God be the Glory in all things! Amen!

Only pray for me, that God would give me both inward and outward strength, that I may not only speak, but truly will; and that I may not merely be called a Christian, but really be found to be one. St.Ignatius of Antioch.Epistle to the Romans.

Lord, have mercy upon Your handmaiden Maureen and grant her peace at home, with loved ones, at work and help her through her troubles.
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.
—St. Isaac of Syria

It is from a place of exile, where my captors torment me, that I write these lines. Through the grace of our Lord, I may one day be free.
