For Samantha and Zeb who expressed curiosity in Orthodoxy.
« on: July 26, 2012, 10:06:11 PM »
My friends Samantha and Zeb (they are married) have expressed their curiosity in Orthodoxy and are planning on attending Liturgy with me on August 5th.  Please pray that they are protected and not discouraged this next week.  Pray also that their hearts and minds are open.

Samantha comes from a Lutheran background and Zeb comes from a pentecostal background.

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.

May the Lord open their physical and spiritual eyes, and may they truly see the beauty that will be before them.

You're doing a wonderful deed by bringing them with you.

May God bless you in your efforts and grant that they be successful!

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 them.
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.
