Prayers?
« on: January 28, 2012, 12:21:53 AM »
I know you're not supposed to pray with the non-Orthodox, but perhaps you can at least pray for one. I've got some personal spiritual stuff going on right now (really it's been going on for awhile but it's getting worse) and I feel like I'm stuck in the desert without answers...so if you could spare a prayer for me I would appreciate it.

Lord have mercy!

Really curious on what made you change your faith on your profile.

Of course, we can pray for you.

Lord Jesus Christ, Son and Word of the Living God, have mercy on your servant, and grant him health and salvation.

Lord, help Wyatt, and have mercy upon him!
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.

Oh my brother! +++Hugs+++

Do not be afraid dear Wyatt, lean on the Blessed Virgin, may our Blessed Mother the Most Holy Theotokos, hasten to your aid and where the senses fail you may she hold your hand, ease your pain and lead you through the desert, may she help you to be obedient to his Will in humility and love even unto death as she the Mother of the Martyrs have done so herself.  May the Lord shelter you in battle, comfort you, shine His countenance upon you and give you peace. May His Glory be manifest in His mercy towards you and me sinners! Amen,Lord have mercy!
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.

Thanks for the prayers everyone. I went to Church this evening for the first time in, well, far too long. I won't say that things are completely back to normal, but I am definitely back on the right track.
