Could I ask for prayer support please. I've reached a crossroad point in a few areas of life, struggling and confused right now and not sure where to head or what to do from here. Specifically:
Study - for motivation and stickability to push through course work, work on and finish assignment which is due next week; and to continue likewise until the course finishes in late Feb 2013.
Job search - for wisdom on where to focus and direct job search in (a) my chosen career field and (b) more sustainable employment in the meantime. Especially for something that would open more opportunities to attend Orthodox church services.
Journeying to Orthodoxy - really not sure what to do/confused at this point. Feel like I'm swimming in a big ocean with no solid land in sight. Not sure what (or if I should take on) any Orthodox practices like a prayer rule (I'm only an inquirer at this stage). Not sure how to live the Christian life while still living in Protestant-land, where things like repentance/confession/preparation for communion fit in outside of Orthodoxy. Where God and His grace is to be found (in sacraments, or somewhere else) outside of Orthodoxy. The priest has not responded to any of my emails sent over the last two weeks, not sure what to make of or how (or if?) to respond to that. Don't know if any of this is spiritual attack. Doesn't help that I'm somewhat isolated from other local Christians right now - current job clashes with church services, I live a ways out of town and can't afford petrol right now to go visiting. Unhealthy situation spiritually, physically, emotionally, socially, but can't see a way to change it. Please pray for clarity and peace over the whole Orthodoxy issue, and opportunities to worship and fellowship with other Christians in the meantime.
Thank you for including me in your prayers.
Holy God, Holy Mighty, Holy Immortal, have mercy on me.
