prayer for my mother
« on: March 04, 2012, 11:20:48 PM »
This is the first time I have ever posted in the prayer forum, but I would like to ask that, if you would, youd say a prayer for my mother.  I mentioned in another thread that she is very ill.  She struggles from severe depression and insomnia.  As a result of these two things, shes starting to go crazy.  Believe it or not, it has been nearly a month since she has slept for more than an hour or so.  She has even been in and out of the hospital a couple times and she is beginning to worry for her life.  She has even tried to take her own life recently.  If you remember, just lift her up and ask that the Theotokos and all the Saints would also intercede on her behalf. 

Even if we have thousands of acts of great virtue to our credit, our confidence in being heard must be based on God's mercy and His love for men. Even if we stand at the very summit of virtue, it is by mercy that we shall be saved.

— Chrysostom

Lord, have mercy upon Timon's mother, granting her peace and good health....and strength for Timon to handle the situation.
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 on Timon's mother.
