Asking your prayers please for my family as we deal with some sudden stresses involving our eldest and college and costs.

Lord have mercy!
Psalm 37:23 The Lord guides a man safely in the way he should go.

Prov. 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.

May the Lord be merciful and ease your stress.  May He present You with the means to pay for all the expenses, open your child's mind so he/she quickly learns and excells at their studies....

Praying for happiness and peace.
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.

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.
