someone disturbed by hearing voices
« on: August 15, 2012, 10:01:00 AM »
Please lets all take a moment and pray for someone who is disturbed by hearing voices. This person I heard on the radio (Orthodox radio program) sounds very desperate and on the verge of giving up on God. His faith his being tested and I feel really sorry for him. He said the voices are so loud that he can't even pray anymore so lets all take a moment and pray for him.

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.

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 on your servant!
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.
