Pray for Me
« on: March 29, 2012, 10:57:36 AM »
If you all wouldn't mind, could you keep me in your prayers?  I am having some problems right now and would appreciate any divine help I could get.  I don't really want to go into too much detail since I feel it is kind of a pathetic matter, but a few of you that I know in real life or talk to on the side probably have an idea.  I didn't want to post anything since there are people on here who are getting laid off or have sick parents/family, and deaths, etc.  My problems don't even begin to compare to all those.  All the same, St. John of Shanghai said that the prayers of a righteous man availeth much.  I'm not really righteous, so I figure I should get all the help I can.

I pray that God be with me, and that His will be done, even if it differs from mine.

Thank you all.

May the Lord have mercy and quickly come to your aid, granting you that which is to your benefit!

Lord, have mercy!!!

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.
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.

Thank you all for praying for me.  I was overreacting to something that could have been resolved by having proper faith in God.  Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me a sinner.

Wonderful, the key is as you said "I pray that God be with me, and that His will be done, even if it differs from mine".  In your asking us to pray for you, your statement helped me. Thank you.

That line came from my Grandma when we talked the night before.   ;)  All the same I am thankful to God for all He has done for me.
