What should I do to be saved?
« on: August 10, 2012, 03:47:10 PM »
Serious question. I feel more and more distant to God and i feel horrible , empty , vain , nihilistic , dark and scared at many moments.. fear of atheism maybe.. Anyway pls help me with your advice and please pray for me.. My name is Danut... Also i beg you please pray for my uncle who  passed away 6 weeks ago and left behind a poor familly.. He will have the 6 weeks service this weekend.. Please pray for him to have rest and be forgiven of sins.. His name is Pop Gavril.Also pray for all my departed ones and for a 2nd grade uncle who has a bad desease at his kidneys and i think he needs a kidney transfer.. His name is Lecu.. Play also for my father Ioan, my mother Dorina and my sister Maria.. There was a lot of tension in our house in the past year and we all are very tensionated , dark and sad.. essp my father.. Pls pray for my father Ioan.. God bless you!

Lord, have mercy!
"These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world." -Jesus Christ

May the 21 new martyrs pray for us all.

Please, remember me in your prayers

Lord, protect Egypt, Syria, Lebanon & Iraq.

My best advice is that, if it is only possible, look for a priest and ask him for a long conversation.

God bless you and your family, Danut. Dumnezeu să te binecuvînteze.

Lord have mercy on Danut and Danut's family.
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.

may God guide u and protect u.
do u read the Holy Bible? it is good to read the psalms and the new testament when u are stressed.
especially saint paul's letter to the philippians is good at these times.

what do u listen to?
download some good Christian music (eg. from liturgy) onto an mp3 player or other electronic gadget and listen to it while u do chores in the house and / or when traveling to work or on long journeys.

i have some other ideas but i will send p.m. as i have seen people told off before for giving too much advice on prayer forum.
doamne ajuta.

Lord have mercy on your servant Danut and his family!  Lord have mercy on Pop Gavril's soul and may his memory be eternal. Lord have mercy on Pop Gavril's family. amen.
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.

Lord have mercy!
May the Holy Spirit easy all the tension in your family and bring you peace. Memory eternal to your uncle!
Do not want things to turn out as they seem best to you, but as God pleases. Then you will be free from confusion, and thankful in prayer.
