If I may be so bold as to ask for a few prayers:
For my grandmother, Edythe, who is not Orthodox but a devout Baptist, that she may heal from a recent terrible fall. She is bruised so badly with two black eyes, a swollen face and a knot on her forehead. Also, please pray that her eyesight is maintained for as long as possible -- she suffers from Macular Degeneration and her sight has been getting increasingly worse in the past few months.
For my dear, sweet daughter who will be evaluated for suspected learning disabilities in the coming weeks, and who sometimes struggles with remembering simple concepts in her schoolwork.
For me, that I may try to keep a clear head and heart when dealing with difficult decisions, situations and people, and that I may be a good wife, mother and educator to my children.
