pray for me
« on: March 26, 2012, 12:04:41 PM »
I know there has been a million of these threads, but my prayer life is struggling again.  Usually, its strong during lent, but this year I dont know what the deal is.  I feel like an idiot fasting but not praying.  Just pray for strength!
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.

Don't give up.   :)
He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.

May God give you strength!

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.

God be with you.
