Asking for prayers...
« on: January 11, 2012, 11:26:11 AM »

I've got some major issues at the moment with mom's health, my house is falling apart, etc.  It seems everything has fallen apart at the same time...and I am at a loss. 

Please pray that God grant my mother Halina good health, and that He help me in getting my life and home back in order.

Thanks!
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.

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.
